Portrait of Steve Lynch

Steve Lynch has been named the Health Science Center's executive vice president for business affairs and chief financial officer. Lynch has been with the Health Science Center since 1972 and has served in numerous financial positions. Most recently, Lynch served as interim vice president for business affairs.

Dr. Francisco G. Cigarroa, Health Science Center president, said that after a seven-month national search, he determined that Lynch was the individual most capable of steering the Health Science Center's financial future.

"Steve has earned my great admiration for his hard work, integrity and in-depth understanding of the business and financial affairs of the Health Science Center," Dr. Cigarroa said. "In addition, I have found him to have sound judgment, a thoughtful vision for this institution and the ability to work with individuals from all areas of the campus."

Lynch received an M.B.A. from The University of Texas at San Antonio and has been a certified public accountant for 20 years. He played a key role during the recent legislative session and in recent meetings of The University of Texas System Board of Regents.
