For distinguished careers in defined aspects
of the College’s academic program
Scott Fink ’83 (Accounting)
Since graduating from Wagner in 1983 with a B.S. in accounting, Scott Fink has built a highly successful business career as an owner and operator of car dealerships. He is president and CEO of six dealerships in the state of Florida, including the nation’s largest volume Hyundai dealership.
Fink credits his Wagner education for helping him in many ways, both inside and outside of the classroom. He was very involved on campus, serving as a resident assistant, president of the Student Activities Board, and member and officer in student government. He also managed the Student Union and credits John Bonando, the union’s associate director, for developing his independent spirit.
After a few years with Ford Motor Co., he joined a Mitsubishi dealership in Clearwater, Florida, and led it to become the top volume dealership nationally. In 1998, he purchased Clearwater Toyota. He opened Hyundai of New Port Richey in 2003, and it has become a nationally leading dealership. He also owns Hyundai, Mazda, and Chevrolet dealerships in Wesley Chapel, and is opening two Volkswagen dealerships as well.
Fink is a member and past chair of the National Dealers Council for Hyundai, representing nearly 16,000 new car and truck dealers with 32,500 franchises. He also is very engaged in serving his community, serving on the board of St. Joseph’s Foundation, Metropolitan Ministries, Berkeley Prep School, and Hyundai Hope on Wheels. He and his wife, Kathy, have also generously contributed to many area charitable causes, providing a major gift to help Tampa’s Metropolitan Ministries build transitional housing units for the homeless. He was nominated for the TIME Dealer of the Year program in 2012, which honors new-car dealers who exhibit exceptional performance in their dealerships and perform distinguished community service.

In addition, she appeared as Glinda in the national tour of Wicked, and as Cindy Lou Huffington in the off-Broadway final cast of The Marvelous Wonderettes.

Besides her stage work, Sisko has appeared in a supporting role on the television program The Education of Max Bickford. She is a member of the Actors Equity Association and the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.
A member of Alpha Omicron Pi sorority at Wagner, she has fond memories of being students of both President Richard Guarasci and Lauri Young, professor of theater, who encouraged her to be curious and continue to learn and grow as a person and a performer.
