The Presidential Search launched at the February 2023 meeting of the Board of Trustees.
The Board hired Louise Feroe, PhD, to serve as Interim President during the leadership transition that began when former President Michael E. Geisler retired last summer.
To assist with the Presidential Search Committee with the search for the best candidates, the Board has retained the services of Storbeck Search. If you are interested in exploring this opportunity or have someone to nominate, please contact Steve Leo, Managing Director and Brian Bustin, Senior Associate at Storbeck Search at: MvillePresident@storbecksearch.com.

At the conclusion of the search process, the Committee will make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees who will hire our next President.
