Frank D. Mayhall, a long-time employee of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., has been appointed to the federal government's Senior Executive Service — the personnel system that covers most of the top managerial, supervisory and policy positions in the executive branch of the federal government.
Mayhall, deputy chief financial officer in the Office of the Chief Financial Officer, came to the Marshall Center's Financial Management Office in 1974 as an auditor. Two years later he accepted an assignment as an auditor with NASA's Inspector General in Washington, D.C., to serve in a two-year rotational position at the Kennedy Space Center, Fla. He also led and conducted audits at NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, La., and at the Stennis Space Center, Miss. From 1982 to 1984, he represented the NASA Office of Inspector General as the senior liaison official with the Defense Contract Audit Agency over a five-state region.
He returned to the Marshall Center in 1984, where he served in a number of managerial roles and became deputy chief financial officer for finance in 1991. He was named acting deputy chief financial officer for resources in 1999.
As the deputy chief financial officer for the Marshall Center, Mayhall is responsible, with the chief financial officer, for formulating and executing an annual budget of more than $2 billion.
Mayhall attended the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Okla., and earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Auburn University in Auburn, Ala., in 1974. He is a certified public accountant, a certified government financial manager and has taught accounting courses.
Mayhall is a recipient of NASA's Exceptional Service Medal, and a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Alabama Society of Certified Public Accountants and the Association of Government Accountants.
