The NEOMED Board of Trustees welcomed one new appointed member and re-elected two executive committee officers during its meeting Sept. 22.
James M. Guirguis, a second-year College of Medicine student, was sworn in as a student representative to the Board. He holds a B.S. from Cleveland State University and has extensive experience working with University administrators as well as members of the U.S. Senate and Congress.
The Board also re-elected J. David Heller, CPA, and Robert J. Klonk, as its chair and vice chair, respectively, for additional one-year terms. Heller is co-founder and principal of the NRP Group, a property developer, general contractor and property management company. Klonk is the CEO of The Oswald Companies—an insurance brokerage firm based in Cleveland.
Guirguis, who was appointed by Governor John R. Kasich on Aug. 3, 2016, serves as student representative until June 29, 2018.
