Ten years ago, Curtis Rippee and his family moved to McKinney to be a part of a dynamic community where families live, work, attend school, and attend church all in the same city. Serving on the Board is Rippee’s way to give back and serve and enhance one of the most important foundations of our community, the school system.
Rippee has more than 20 years of financial management experience. He is the Managing Partner and CFO of ACIS, Inc. a commercial HVAC and Plumbing service company. Before joining ACIS, in 2012 he was the the Founder and Principal of StratiFi Partners, LLC, a CFO and consulting services firm. Prior to starting StratiFi Partners, his leadership roles included serving as the Chief Financial Officer of several small to mid-sized private companies, and as the Chief Accounting Officer and Vice President of Finance and Administration for a publicly traded company.
Rippee currently serves on the McKinney Education Foundation Board, First Baptist Church Finance Committee and has served as Treasurer of the Avenues Counseling Center Board of Trustees. He is a Junior Achievement volunteer and is also a past participant in McKinney CAN (Community Action Network), a program involving parents and community leaders in a yearlong dialogue with the school district.
Curtis began his professional career with PriceWaterhouseCoopers, has a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from the University of Missouri and is a licensed Certified Public Accountant.
Rippee and wife, Deeann, are active members of First Baptist Church of McKinney and have three girls, Emma Grace, Abigail, and Ellie, who attend Faubion Middle School and Walker Elementary.
“McKinney ISD is well known for its excellence and innovation,” said Rippee. “My family came to McKinney specifically because of its heritage and reputation as a community and its outstanding school system. McKinney has been everything we could have hoped for and more.”
“I believe my background and experience as a financial professional and business owner, as well as my perspective as a parent of elementary and middle school children, give me the tools needed to represent the citizens of McKinney on the MISD Board of Trustees.”
