New Faculty Spotlight: Kenneth Creech

A new face to Northwestern’s Accounting Department, Kenneth Creech earned both a bachelor's of business administration in accounting and a master's of business administration from Gonzaga University (Spokane, Wash.). He is a Certified Public Accountant.

His previous experience includes associate professor of accounting at Briar Cliff University (Sioux City, Iowa); instructor of management studies at St. Olaf College (Northfield, Minn.); assistant professor of business at the University of Montana Western; unit controller at General Signal Corp. in Connecticut; and Chief Financial Officer at Michigan Wheel Marine. 

Northwestern Oklahoma State University, however, was well known to Creech.

“Both of my parents graduated from Northwestern,” Creech said. “I have family connections in this area and friends throughout Oklahoma. I spent many summers on my grandparent’s farm in Seiling (Okla), so I’m very familiar with northwest Oklahoma”

Well experienced in the accounting world, Creech offers first-hand guidance to his students.

“I tell my students to expect that we will do a lot of things besides what’s in the textbook. I give them real-life projects and experience to help them understand what it will actually be like when they graduate.”

“I can go into a class when the textbook says something that isn’t really done in business and redirect its lesson to apply to the real-world that these students will go into one day. I can help make the students more ‘job-ready’ the day they walk out of here.”

After being in education for nine years, Creech is excited new opportunities provided by Northwestern.

“The goal is to bring the program to the next level. I’m excited to mold the students and connect with them to help them achieve their goals. It’s a good program, let’s make it a great program. Plans are already in place to help this department grow and become even better.”
