Trustees elect new chair and members, vote on GSB facility

The University’s Board of Trustees acquired two new members and a new chair at its June meeting. Edgar D. Jannotta, a trustee since 1984, succeeds Howard G. Krane, JD’57, who has served as chair since 1992. A member of the board’s executive committee since 1996, Jannotta is also senior director of William Blair & Company L.L.C. Jannotta has also served on the boards of the Chicago Historical Society, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Chicago Community Trust, and Rush–Presbyterian–St. Luke’s Medical Center.

Alumni Andrew Alper, AB’80, MBA’81, and Francis Yuen, AB’75, joined the U of C’s board in June. The chief operating officer of the investment-banking division of Goldman Sachs, Alper belongs to the GSB Council and co-chairs the GSB campaign-planning committee. A member of the Alumni Association Board of Governors, he received a Young Alumni Service Citation in 1993.

Yuen, deputy chair of the Pacific Century Group Ltd. in Hong Kong, belongs to the chair’s advisory council of the University’s economics department. The former chief executive of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, he now serves as chair of the Hong Kong Centre for Economic Research’s board of trustees and as a trustee of Fudan University.

The trustees have also approved building a new Graduate School of Business facility on the site where Woodward Court now stands. The building would provide the GSB with twice as much campus space as it now has, more group study rooms and classrooms, and at least 200 underground parking spaces. Construction will not begin until after the two new undergraduate residence halls near Regenstein open.
