Stuart Hixon Class Of 1983


My five years in the USAF were about defense contractor fraud investigations and obtaining my CPA. Upon separation, I held positions as an internal auditor, a controller, and a manager with Ford Credit. I was able to purchase two companies 25 years ago and continue to run them today. I have had opportunities to hold various volunteer positions in not-for-profits. As Treasurer of USA Swimming between September 2012 and 2016, with a $60 million annual budget, I was able to save Swimming $6 million in insurance and sell a captive reinsurance company for $19.7 million, a $14.6 million profit.

Candidacy Statement
Being lucky enough to spend time giving back to organizations that have benefited me, my desire is to volunteer for the AOG Board. Bringing with me a strong background in board service in the not-for-profit area, I understand board governance for these organizations. My background in finance and accounting, as well as insurance and other financial areas, allows me to be multifaceted in my board service. I can never repay the Academy but feel by volunteering to serve on the AOG Board, I can best utilize my expertise to give back to the institution that provided me so much.
