13930 Don Raymond has been named the next chair of Queen’s Board of Trustees

Queen’s University has announced the appointment of Donald M. Raymond, an internationally respected investment executive and Queen’s alumnus, as the next chair of the university’s Board of Trustees.

Ex Cadet, Don Raymond is a member of Class of 1983. He completed his first two years at RMC and started Engineering Physics in third year. Then he decided that RMC was not for him and transferred to Queen’s.

13846 Kevin Bryski, Secretary for the Class of 1983 had this to say on hearing the news. “Don is a super guy and he has always been supportive of RMC despite his decision to depart. I have not heard from him in the past ten years, so this appointment is good news.”

Dr. Raymond will begin a four-year term as chair on June 1, 2016, succeeding Barbara Palk, who has served as chair since 2012. His nomination as chair was recommended to the Board by its Governance and Nominating Committee, following a thorough review and selection process led by 7771 Chancellor Jim Leech (RRMC / RMC ‘68).

“Don has been a highly engaged member of the Board of Trustees and he will bring a tremendous amount of expertise to the role of chair,” says Chancellor Jim Leech, who serves as a member of the Board’s Governance and Nominating Committee and chaired the Advisory Subcommittee that recommended Dr. Raymond. “Queen’s is fortunate to have a wealth of experience among its trustees and both the Board and the university will benefit greatly from Don’s leadership in this role.”

“As we prepare to celebrate the 175th anniversary of Queen’s Royal Charter, I am mindful of the selfless dedication of generations of leaders who conceived a humble, regional college and built a university with global impact,” says Dr. Raymond. “I look forward to working closely with my Board colleagues and the entire university community to enhance Queen’s strategic position as the quintessential balanced academy, ready to take on the next 175 years.”

The Board of Trustees is one of the university’s governing bodies, along with Senate and University Council. While the Senate is responsible for academic matters, the Board is responsible for the overall operation of the university, including overseeing financial matters, property, and making senior appointments. Queen’s is one of the country’s oldest degree-granting institutions and will celebrate its 175th anniversary in 2016-2017.
