I am a Ph.D. Financial Economist, and 2016 Candidate for the Office of President of the United States of America – POTUS. 

I served as Chief Negotiator, Numerous City and Local Boards of Education, State of Ohio, responsible for many hundreds of cases dealing heavily with finance (1970s and 80s). I have traveled extensively: Russia, Byelorussia, Latvia, Croatia, Holland, England, The Netherlands, Ireland, Brussels and other locations, lecturing and/or presenting papers in Finance and labor-related Finance (1980s). When I visited the former USSR in Moscow, Leningrad and other Soviet locations as Leader of the Finance Delegation (36 persons) and at U.S. State Department expense, our flight on Pan Am left New York without us.  Upon hearing of this situation the head of Aeroflot USSR flew us to Shannon, Ireland, all expenses Soviet-paid 1st Class on Aer Lingus, and arranged for one of its planes returning Russian troops home from Cuba to stop for us in Shannon and take my Delegation to Moscow (USSR flights were not allowed to land in USA at the time and Moscow banks were waiting for me). The Boards of Directors of each USSR bank – one in Moscow, the other in Leningrad - (2 banks only in all of USSR at that time) were awaiting the Coyne Finance Delegation.  I met and spoke privately with Boris Yeltzin on this trip (1989).  In 1990 the Publication Department, People to People International, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Founder, President George Bush, Honorary Chairman, published and distributed a journal regarding my “Financial Management Delegation to the U.S.S.R.” effort.

I have a web site which reveals most of my current professional activities: I have served on expedited arbitration panels, as a permanent umpire for the U. S. Air Force, Heath, Ohio, and as fact finder for scores of education cases in the state of Ohio.

I am a former B&O railroad brakeman, a former C&O railway officer.  After writing my Master’s Thesis (MBA):  “Proposals of the Railroads for Alleviating Their Financial Crisis” (copy available, Archives, Library, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI), John Kusik, CEO, C&O Railway, and Cyrus Eaton, Principal stockholder, C&O Railway, and receipt of my MBA, hired me as an officer on C&O. I appeared before the Interstate Commerce Commission dealing with per diem rate cases of railroad cars; more significantly, I worked closely and significantly with Cyrus Eaton as we merged the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway with the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad.  (That railroad today is called CSX).

After writing my Ph.D. dissertation:  “Banking Structure in West Virginia” (copy available, Archives, Library, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI), and having it published by Legislative Services Committee, State of WV, West Virginia passed legislation to allow state-wide branch banking.  Prior to publication of my dissertation, WV was the ONLY state in the USA disallowing branch banking.

I was a tenured, full-time full professor of finance/economics at fully accredited (AACSB) universities (MBA studies) for the better part of 33 years. I have extensive experience (managed millions of dollars per client, without losing any money for anyone) with stocks, bonds, T-Bills, notes and other financial matters (mergers/acquisition), have experience with the high profile, highly paid sports figure, and am eligible for Department of Defense and other government assignments. I have a Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) code number.

I am a licensed pilot; I hosted a live 50,000 watt call-in talk radio show broadcast simultaneously in Cleveland and Youngstown, Ohio.  I am available for foreign assignments.

I am a an honorably discharged combat veteran of the Korean Conflict, having served in Co. L., 180th Infantry Regiment, 45th Infantry Division, Sandbag Castle, Korea and am a recipient of the Korean Service Medal with two (2) Bronze Service Stars, the United Nations Service Medal, the National Defense Medal, the Combat Infantry Badge (CIB), the Good Conduct Medal, and a Letter of Appreciation from Kim Dae-jung, President of the Republic of Korea.

I am a former member of the National Association of Securities Dealers Association (NASD) Board of Arbitrators, a member of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Board of Arbitrators, and a member of The National Mediation Board, Washington, D.C.
