James Mauldin

Vice Chancellor and Chief Financial Officer

James Mauldin was named the vice chancellor and chief financial officer for the Texas Tech University System on Nov. 10, 2022.

Mauldin coordinates the TTU System’s nearly $3 billion operating budget and is responsible for the overall financial strength and stability of the system. He oversees multiple offices, services and administrative functions, including Investments, Treasury, Accounting and Reporting, Risk Management, Equal Opportunity and Information Technology.

Prior to joining the TTU System, Mauldin served as vice president of treasury management for the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport where he was responsible for the defined benefit and defined contribution pension, debt portfolio, grants, banking and investments operations. His team led eight bond issues totaling more than $5 billion during the COVID-19 pandemic and implemented a commercial paper program for the airport, which ranked as the No. 2 busiest airport in the world in 2021 with more than 62 million passengers.

He served in a critical leadership role during his four-year tenure at the University of North Texas System as associate vice chancellor for treasury and later in the interim CFO position. His notable contributions include centralizing key functions for the university system, generating incremental investment returns and implementing a strategic capital planning model.

From 2008 to 2015, Mauldin served a pair of municipalities as the director of finance/CFO at the City of Cedar Hill – a suburb in Dallas County – and as treasurer and assistant director of finance for the City of Fort Worth, which is the county seat in Tarrant County.

Mauldin has taught in higher education since 2009 as an adjunct finance professor at Dallas Baptist University, his alma mater, where he earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in finance.

He has made significant contributions to volunteer boards and military organizations as a member of the TexSTAR advisory board, Cedar Hill Economic Development Corporation board and six years of service with the U.S. Navy Reserves (logistics).

Mauldin is a certified public accountant (CPA) by the Texas Board of Public Accountancy and is a certified treasury professional by the Association for Financial Professionals.
