President, George Mason University Foundation, Inc.

Roe has been with the George Mason University Foundation since 1990, serving first as Accounting Manager, then Chief Financial Officer prior to being named president in 2007. He has been an Adjunct Accounting Faculty Member at Mason since 1998. Roe is currently a member of the George Mason University Foundation Board of Trustees, the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants and the Northern Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants.

Roe said, “I was always surprised by the number of adult professionals that came back to school to gain a first or second degree and how helpful they were to the more traditional students like myself in understanding how the material that we were learning in class had real world application,” when asked about his experience at Mason.

Roe says, “Your integrity is your greatest asset. Know where you stand and don’t be afraid to stand against activities that you believe are wrong.”
