Michael Bundy has been appointed as the new chief officer for Finance and Business Operations for Vance County Schools.


Members of the Vance County Board of Education approved his appointment at their regular monthly meeting on February 11.

“It will be an honor and privilege to serve the students, staff and community of Vance County Schools,” Bundy said. “It is rewarding to know that I will have a small part in the success of students in their journey to achieve their goals of a bright future.” 


Bundy has held finance positions at the state level. Prior to serving in Moore County Schools, he served in the finance department in the Cumberland County School System. He also is a former president of the N.C. Association of School Business Officers and is highly regarded and recognized as one of the best finance officers in the state.


“Mr. Bundy is imminently qualified and brings a wealth of experience and expertise in the areas of school finance, accounting and auditing to us,” said Dr. Anthony Jackson, superintendent of Vance County Schools.


“We are indeed fortunate to get someone with Mr. Bundy's background, experience and of his caliber,” Jackson added. “I am confident that he will lead our finance team to the next level of excellence and will enable us to stay on our positive trajectory organizationally and financially.”  


He is a certified public accountant and a certified school business officer. He received his bachelor of science degree in accounting from Wingate University and his master’s of business administration degree from Campbell University.


Bundy will officially begin his employment with Vance County Schools on April 1. 


He succeeds Jennifer Bennett, who has taken the finance leadership position with Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools.
