Good Morning:

I am pleased to report that Philip Greer has been appointed chair-elect of the Board of Tulane, the university's governing and policy-making authority. Phil’s three-year term as chair will begin July 1, 2006. He will replace our current chair, Cathy Pierson, when her term expires.

Phil, a member of the Board of Tulane since 1999 and a past Tulane parent, is a significant contributor to the university and board in his roles as vice chair of the board, vice chair of the Endowment Committee and chair of its Investment Subcommittee. Phil is knowledgeable and keenly interested in all aspects of the university and has all the requisite skills to lead the board during these exciting times.
