Galveston County Daily News (Internet / Print) 07/08/06 M. Dean Kinsey owned $43,500 of stock in Navigant Consulting at the same time he participated in the University of Texas Medical Branch’s decision to hire the company to recommend a massive reorganization. His family foundation owned $58,000 more. But contrary to anonymous assertions made to The Daily News, Kinsey disclosed that ownership one month after hiring on at the medical branch in October, according to documents the paper obtained through an open records request. That was four months before Navigant was hired at a cost of $1.75 million. Kinsey disclosed it again in May, the records said. Now he is in the process of divesting that stock, said Chris Comer, the university’s assistant vice president for public affairs. Kinsey is vice dean for clinical planning. Before coming to the medical branch, he worked for a firm that was bought by Navigant.
