RICK WAGONER ELECTED CHAIR OF DUKE TRUSTEES
G. Richard Wagoner, Jr., the former chairman and CEO of General Motors and a 1975 Duke graduate, was elected chair of the university's Board of Trustees Saturday.
He succeeds Dan Blue, who served as chair from 2009-11 and was elected trustee emeritus after 16 years on the board.
Wagoner was first elected to the Board of Trustees in 2001 and has served as vice chair since 2007. He joined GM in 1977 after earning an MBA from Harvard University, and over the next three decades rose from a financial analyst to eventually lead the company before retiring in 2009.
