Alan Wilson, president, CEO, and chairman of the board of McCormick & Company, has been selected to head the newly formed UT Knoxville Alumni Board of Directors. Wilson is a 1980 graduate from the College of College of Communication and Information.
Under Wilson’s leadership, McCormick has reached over $3 billion in sales, the largest in its history. We expect Wilson to use these leadership skills to make a positive impact as president of the UT Knoxville Alumni Board. He has agreed to serve a two-year term to help create consistency in the beginnings of the board.
The first official meeting of the UT Knoxville Alumni Board of Directors will be held on Friday, Sept. 11. Members of the board will be asked to provide advice and counsel to university administration and guidance for alumni initiatives.
The board will consist of alumni from a variety of colleges and degrees, geographic locations, as well as ages, races, and genders. The board will be representative of the diversity of a large, public, land-grant institution like the University of Tennessee.
