Rendell Appoints New Members to Board of Trustees

In his final weeks as governor of Pennsylvania before the November elections, Ed Rendell has appointed two new members, Mark H. Dambly and Paul H. Silvis,  to the Penn State Board of Trustees and has also reappointed standing member Ira Lubert.

Dambly will step in for current trustee Roger J. Reschini when his term ends on June 30, 2011. Dambly graduated from Penn State with a degree in real estate and insurance. He now works as president of Pennrose Properties, a Philadelphia-based real estate development company, a position he has held since 2004. More information on Dambly and his company can be found here.

Silvis will fill the position formerly held by Eugene Chaiken. Silvis is a graduate of the Smeal College of Business, Executive MBA. He is the founder of Restek, a Bellefonte-based company specializing in manufacturing innovative chromatography products. Currently Silvis is focusing on SilcoTek, an offshoot of Restek.

The Board of Trustees is the primary governing body of the university, both for University Park and the Commonwealth Campuses. Of the 32 trustees that make up the Board, six are appointed by the Governor of the Commonwealth, nine are elected by alumni, six are elected by delegates from agricultural societies and six are elected to represent business and industry.

The elected and appointed members are joined by five ex officio members made up of the governor of the Commonwealth, the president of the university and the state secretaries for the Departments of Agriculture, Education, and Conservation and Natural Resources.For more information about the Board of Trustees, visit their website.

More information on the appointment can be found at Penn State Live.
