Stephen McGowan: CFO, Sun Mircosystems

Stephen McGowan, who holds an MBA from the Graduate School of Business at Loyola Chicago University, was the chief financial officer of Sun Microsystems from 2002 until 2006, when he then became the executive vice president for finance of the Santa Clara, CA-based technology company. McGowan has worked in the computer and financial worlds for over 30 years, and became CFO at Sun after rival computer-producer IBM drastically cut into Sun’s market share. McGowan was credited with overseeing highly productive legal, information technology, and sales departments at Sun. Prior to joining Sun, McGowan spent 17 years working at Digital Equipment Corporation in the United States and Canada. He also serves as a vice president of the Naval Postgraduate School Foundation, the development arm of the defense school whose mission it is to prepare “the intellectual leaders of tomorrow’s national and international security organizations.”
