Although no longer a shareholder, McCoy Foat honors the career of founding partner Michael McCoy. Michael began his accounting career at the University of Oregon with degrees in quantitative methods and accounting. He worked for a national tax firm before joining Portland General Electric (PGE) as the head of their securities and exchange and, later, accounting departments. Michael then served as a vice president for North American Energy Services, managing large thermal energy projects, as well as mergers and acquisitions. In 1987 Michael followed his entrepreneurial dream, establishing his first eponymous firm.

Michael joined forces with Mark Foat and Dick Gassner in 2001 to create McCoy Foat and Company. Over the course of his distinguished forty-five year career, Michael excelled in all areas of tax planning and business strategy, holding the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) designation from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Certified Valuation Analyst and Certified Business Appraiser designations from the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA). Since his retirement in December 2016, Michael has enjoyed spending time with his family, Heidi and dog Rashna, traveling, and exploring his favorite hobbies: boating, scuba diving, and cycling.
