The Marshall University Board of Governors today named Marshall alumnus, Wing 2 Wing Foundation co-founder and former Intuit CEO Brad D. Smith the institution’s 38th president. Smith will assume the presidency Jan. 1, 2022.
Earlier this month, the presidential search committee announced Smith as one of five finalists for the position following a national search. The five candidates took part in open forums on the university’s Huntington and South Charleston campuses earlier this month, meeting with students, faculty, staff and members of the community.
The decision to hire Smith was made by the Marshall University Board of Governors with a unanimous vote this morning at its regular October meeting.
