John Spalding (AB ’82, JD ’85) was unanimously elected by the University of Georgia Board of Trustees to serve as chair for the next two-year term, ending June 30, 2015. He succeeds Bill Young Jr., who served the foundation in two separate terms from 2007 to 2009 and 2011 to present.

The board also elected, by unanimous vote, Kenneth G. Jackson (BBA ’79, MAcc ’80) as vice chairman, Andrew M. “Jack” Head (BBA ’75) as secretary and William W. Douglas III (BBA ’83) as treasurer.

Spalding inherits chairmanship of a foundation whose endowment grew during Young’s term by more than $125 million to $800 million despite a very challenging economic climate.

Six new managing trustees joined the board on July 1, 2013: Garry W. Bridgeman, Victor E. Corrigan II (BS ’79), Stephen Joiner (BBA ’86), Steve C. Jones (BBA ’78, JD ’87), Cliff McCurry (BBA ’71) and Barry L. Storey (BSA ’82).

In addition the board added five new advisory trustees: Mark Chandler (BBA ’81), Richard W. Courts IV (BBA ’95), John Mangan (BBA ’82), John E. “Ted” McMullan (MBA ’93) and Susan Donziger Sherman (ABJ ’82).

Joining as ex-officio trustees are College of Family and Consumer Sciences Associate Dean Silvia Q. Giraudo (MS ’84, PhD ’91), Student Government Association President Austin Laufersweiler, Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Libby V. Morris (AB ’71), Interim Vice President for Finance and Administration Ryan A. Nesbit (MBA ’91) and UGA Alumni Association President Timothy A. Keadle (BBA ’78).
