Marshall Criser III Chosen As New State University System Chancellor

By on November 20th, 2013

Florida’s Board of Governors met earlier Wednesday and unanimously approved Marshall Criser III to be the new university chancellor.

Marshall Criser, 55, currently serves on the University of Florida’s Board of Trustees and is President of AT&T Florida.

After board member Morti Hosseini formally announced the new chancellor, the committee had nothing but positive things to say about their selection.

“We needed to select somebody that not only understands some of the challenges ahead but has a perspective of where we have been and where we need to go,” Board member Tom Kuntz said. ”So the fact that we have found a Floridian, somebody who has dedicated there career to not only work in the private sector but also to the state of Florida, I think is the best possible outcome.”

Criser’s first day on the job is Jan. 6.
