According to the Tampa Bay Business Journal, the Power 100 guide aims to reflect who are the most influential business people in Tampa Bay at this moment in time. The publication “looked to assess not only organizational leadership but those who either visibly or quietly, through philanthropic or institutional means, shape the path and fortunes of the regional business community beyond their own bubble.”

This year Vaughn is celebrating his 26th year as the president of The University of Tampa. During that time the University’s enrollment has quadrupled, the University’s financial position has been solidified and strengthened, and the campus has been transformed with modern, state-of-the-art facilities. In addition, Vaughn has overseen the completion of two successful capital campaigns, and today UT’s economic impact is more than $1.1 billion.
