R. Alan Marcum, executive vice president for administration at Devon Energy, will address graduating East Central University students during commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at the Kerr Activities Center.

Marcum will be speaking at both the 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. ceremonies to 476 bachelor’s degree candidates and 191 master’s degree candidates.
Marcum, an ECU grad and 2013 Distinguished Alumnus, is one of eight members of the company’s executive committee and has been involved in Devon Energy’s massive growth from a $200 million company in 1995 to the largest company in the state of Oklahoma with an enterprise value of $28 billion.
Devon, headquartered in Oklahoma City, currently employs more than 5,000 employees located across North America. Marcum was also a part of the team that oversaw construction of the Devon Energy Tower, the company’s new headquarters. He helped ensure that the project was completed on time, within budget and that the facility included appropriate amenities to improve the company’s efficiency.
A 1990 graduate of ECU with concentrations in accounting and finance, Marcum was a four-year starter on the Tiger football team and received all-conference honors his junior and senior seasons, as well as an honorable mention All-American award as a senior. He also competed on ECU’s track team.
In 2009, Marcum received the Joe Milam Award, named in honor of the former football coach and educator in Oklahoma. The award is given annually at ECU to a former football player who not only excelled on the gridiron but in his chosen profession or career.
Marcum joined Devon in 1995 where he held the position of vice president and controller.
Prior to joining Devon, he was employed by KPMG Peat Marwick (now KPMG LLP) as a senior auditor. Marcum is a certified public accountant and is a member of the Oklahoma State Society of Certified Public Accountants.
A native of Pauls Valley, he is committed to enhancing the community and served on numerous boards and committees. He is on the East Central Investment Committee, Purcell Board of Education, Oklahoma River Boathouse Foundation and the Petroleum Club.
Marcum also serves on the United Way of Central Oklahoma’s board and is on the organization’s fundraising cabinet. He also serves on the Allied Arts fundraising cabinet and MAPS 3 subcommittee. He is a graduate of Leadership Oklahoma City and has served on the YMCA’s board of directors.
Last summer, he served as a mentor to high school students in ECU’s Oklahoma Business Week Camp.
Marcum’s wife is Jana, a 1988 ECU graduate. They have two children. Their daughter is Taylor, a graduate of Oklahoma State University and is currently pursuing her doctorate degree in physical therapy. Their son, Hunter, is studying business and at the University of Central Oklahoma and is a member of the baseball team.
