Columbia has appointed president and CEO, Tim Boyle, as its new chairman, following the death of Gert Boyle at the end of last year.
The Board of Directors also acted to formalise a Lead Independent Director role on the Board and appointed long-time serving Board member Andy Bryant to serve in such role.
Bryant served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Intel Corporation from May 2012 to January 2020, and will be stepping down from Intel’s Board of Directors following its 2020 Annual Stockholders’ meeting. Bryant has served on the Board of Directors of the Columbia since 2005, and chairs the Company’s Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.
“We feel fortunate to have a seasoned leader like Andy as a strong independent voice on our Board. Andy’s wealth of experience at Intel has led him to be a source of tremendous insight for our Board and I look forward to working even closer with him as he serves as Lead Independent Director,” said Tim Boyle, Chairman, President and CEO of Columbia.
