June 8, 2015 – CarterBaldwin Executive Search has been selected by King University to lead its search for a new president. Dr. Richard Ray has been serving as interim president for nearly 16 months. He was named to the position after longtime president, Greg Jordan, resigned in 2014.“The trustees felt like an executive search firm would help us pick the best person for the job,” said Jon Harr, associate dean of academic affairs and president of the search committee. “CarterBaldwin was the choice. They are currently working with us and talking with the constituents to determine what the president should look like. What do we want? What does the presidential profile look like? We are getting a lot of input through surveys, forums with faculty, staff, students and alumni. We are in that phase now.”
Founded in 1867, King University is a private, doctoral-level Presbyterian university in Bristol, Tennessee. The school has graduate programs offered in business administration, nursing, and education.
