Layton Getsinger🏴‍☠️

🏴‍☠️Layton Getsinger '69 🏴‍☠️

Layton Getsinger, Class of 1969, is a life-long Pirate. Getsinger is a current resident of Statesville, North Carolina. He has steadfastly served his community, his University and his country as a career Naval aviator and Vietnam War veteran.

Following his military career, Getsinger served as associate vice chancellor for Administration and Finance and executive director of Business Services at ECU. In this capacity, he and his team created numerous innovative and creative personnel and customer service initiatives; many of which are still in existence today and serve as a model throughout the UNC system as well as higher education nationwide. These programs either netted or saved the University millions of dollars in precious resources that could be re-deployed for more urgent needs. One of his most notable accomplishments was the sole source pouring rights contract with Pepsi Cola that resulted in the establishment of a $10.1 million scholarship fund for all areas of the University. After leaving the University, Getsinger took over as Chief Operating Officer of CopyPro, Inc.

Concurrent with his professional career, Getsinger also found time to volunteer for the University and served as chair of the Alumni Association in 2005. Under his direction and leadership, the Alumni Association’s Board of Directors revamped the Association with the hiring of Paul Clifford and his team, creation of a strategic plan, and implementing a funding model that has enabled distribution in excess of $100,000 in student scholarships in the last six years.

Getsinger has been recognized over the years for his leadership and courage, which include receiving the City of Greenville Certificate of Appreciation for services rendered during a hostage situation; induction into the 2000 George Whitfield Hall of Fame in 2000 and Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society in 2006, named a 1999 Outstanding Alumni Award recipient, named in Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities and Who’s Who Among Executives and Professionals, as well as numerous commendations for his military career. He is a member of Rotary International, he and his wife Jane are life members of the Alumni Association, and active members of the Pirate Club.

As a student, Getsinger was active in campus life including being head cheerleader, treasurer of Student Government, and business manager of the Buccaneer Yearbook. He was a member of Theta Chi Fraternity.

Getsinger subsequently received a master of arts in international studies from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.
