A Converse County businesswoman has been appointed to fill a vacancy on the University of Wyoming Board of Trustees.

Macey Moore -- the owner of a Douglas realty firm who, along with her husband, owns and operates both a ranch and a historic Douglas hotel -- will fill out the term of Larry Gubbels, who resigned from the board for health reasons.

Gov. Matt Mead announced the appointment today (Thursday). The term runs through Feb. 28, 2019.

“I felt it was important to appoint another person from Converse County to fill Larry’s seat, and I’m pleased Macey agreed to serve,” the governor says. “She is a UW graduate, an accomplished entrepreneur and has strong ties to her community and Wyoming.”

Moore, a 1999 graduate of UW with a degree in finance, worked for 12 years in corporate finance with Accenture before obtaining a Wyoming real estate license and taking ownership of RE/MAX Horizon Realty six years ago. She and her husband, Keith, own the Round Rock Ranch, a working cattle and sheep ranch. They also renovated and own the Historic LaBonte Hotel.

“I am honored to be appointed to this position and ready to get started working with the University of Wyoming,” Moore says. “My time at the university, as a student, prepared me for my future in business. I look forward to giving back through this role and doing everything I can to help the next generation of students be successful.”

Moore has served on Eastern Wyoming College’s Douglas Advisory Committee, which was instrumental in planning and building EWC’s new Douglas Campus facility. She also is a member of the City of Douglas Master Planning Committee, the Douglas Board of Realtors and Chi Omega.

Moore and her husband have three children, Shayla, Jaxon and Tatem.

The UW Board of Trustees has the responsibility to approve and adopt the general policies governing the university and provide broad oversight for the fiduciary management, academic policies and general welfare of UW students.
