Marquette adds five new members to board of trustees

Marquette University’s board of trustees has expanded its base with five new members, according to an announcement made by the university today.

 

“Our new board members represent diverse perspectives that will give even greater depth and breadth to our decision-making processes,” said university president Michael Lovell, Ph.D. “As we seek to develop new and innovative partnerships with businesses and other academic institutions, the expertise these individuals bring to the table will be invaluable. I look forward to working with them closely to ensure we’re delivering on our promise to provide a transformational student experience that is second-to-none.”

The election of the new board members comes on the heels of Lovell’s inauguration on Friday, when he announced a collection of partnerships and projects he set into action during his first months on campus.

New board members are:

*Robert Eck, a 1980 graduate of the Helen Way Klingler College of Arts and Sciences and president and chief executive officer of Glenview, Ill.-based Anixter International, Inc.

*Jon Hammes, founder and managing partner of Brookfield-based Hammes Company.

*Nancy Hernandez, a 2002 graduate of the Graduate School of Management and president and founder of ABRAZO Multicultural Marketing and Communication. The agency has offices in Milwaukee and El Paso, Texas.

*Rev. Patrick McGrath, S.J., president of Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Ill. The institution is the largest Jesuit high school in the country.

*Rev. Kevin O’Brien, S.J., vice president for mission and ministry at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. O’Brien also serves as a lecturer in Georgetown’s Department of Theology, is an award-winning author and serves as a consultor to the provincial of the Maryland Province of Jesuits.
