After his 20 years with Andersen, Mr. McKinley spent a year with Fifth Third Bank as Vice-President-Director of Bancorp Recruiting.  He was responsible for overseeing all recruiting needs for 19 affiliate locations throughout a nine-state footprint.

His wife Jodie, also an EKU alumna, and three daughters live in Anderson Township, a suburb of Cincinnati.  A member of the board of Habitat for Humanity, the M.E. Lyons YMCA, and the Business Advisory Board for the College of Mount St. Joseph and Xavier University, Mr. McKinley also co-teaches a class on Leadership Development and Networking at the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University.

Congratulations, Mr. McKinley, on being selected as the 2008 Distinguished Alumnus representing the Department of Accounting, Finance and Information Systems.
