Alan K. McVey took over as the OCSE Administrator, a.k.a. Director, on April, 24, 2015 with a salary of $106,942.99.
McVey grew up in Des Arc and after graduating from UALR with a degree in Political Science, he went to work for his dad's timber business. McVey left the family business to became a loan officer at the Des Arc branch of the Farmers and Merchants Bank of Stuttgart.
In 1996 McVey joined the staff of Gov. Mike Huckabee as a policy advisor. In 1998 he was appointed as the deputy director for the Arkansas Department of Economic Development. McVey trudged along at ADED until September 2006 when he accepted a position as executive director of the Delta Center for Economic Development at Arkansas State University.
McVey left employment at ASU in February 2015 under mysterious circumstances.
McVey, as the old folks in Des Arc say, was left without a pot to piss in, and needed to find a job. When all hope was lost, providence provided a position.
Well, at least an old friend did.

The old friend that bailed McVey out was none other than his former boss at the ADED, now the Director of the Arkansas Department of Finance & Administration, Larry Walther.

You might be thinking what experience and or knowledge does McVey have of the Arkansas Office of Child Support Enforcement. Our guess is none, unless he picked up one of the brochures at the front desk when he came to check out his new office in downtown Little Rock...
Nothing in his past had anything to do with the child support system in Arkansas or elsewhere (unless he was an absent parent and paid child support).
McVey's appointment is another fine example of Gov. Hutchinson putting friends and supporters on the public payroll. Check out another blog we have about another DFA office that has some other examples of cronyism.

Maybe Walther is going to use McVey to clear house at OCSE like McVey did at ADEA...
