Michael Ray Newman

Clinical Professor - Director of Accounting Programs

Michael Newman


I was born in Canada and raised in South America (Bolivia, Chile, Peru) and Central America (Trinidad & Tobago) by American parents. My father was a geophysicist. I started my first company at age 18 and took it regional before selling it a year later. I helped with another start-up right after my 20th birthday. We took it National and sold it by the time I was 30. Shortly after that (1986) I became involved in not-for-profits that worked with youth and later, abused youth.

I embarked on my current career in 2002. I find that being a professor, teacher and researcher is an extraordinarily rewarding experience! I look forward to spending the rest of my life in my new vocation/avocation!

All in all, I am truly Blessed given my wonderful position at UH and the fact I am married to a wonderful woman, Peggy, who continues to love me after 34 years together, and to have 2 great daughters and 4 beautiful and smart grand daughters in my life, all of whom I love and who love me! :)
