Kathy and Andy Moock are retired business executives who share a common interest in serving underprivileged children.
Andy has always enjoyed learning. After graduating with a systems analysis degree in 1980, he joined Ernst and Whinney as a systems consultant. He then sat for and passed the CPA exam without a degree in accounting. After six years with E&Y, he took an opportunity to purchase a minority interest in a small plastics manufacturer, which later changed its name to InVue. He proceeded to learn everything about the business, and as Executive Vice President, he managed manufacturing, engineering, systems, finance, legal, HR and sourcing. He is listed on over 20 patents. He helped InVue grow 50-fold and negotiated numerous acquisitions and divestitures. He has traveled extensively, visiting China over 25 times. He retired in late 2021.
Andy has a passion for service and children in need and has volunteered as a board member and direct youth mentor for many charities, including: Pathway Caring for Children, a private foster care agency based in Canton, Ohio; OASIS Outreach Opportunity, a charity providing outreach to inner-city kids in Akron, Ohio; Boy’s Hope Girl’s Hope, a Cleveland-based, privately funded charity providing housing, mentoring, tutoring and education funding to high potential kids-in-need; First Glance, an Akron charity providing mentoring to kids-in-need; Clearview Legacy Foundation, a historic, minority-owned golf course in East Canton, Ohio that is currently building a museum / clubhouse / event facility.
