Governor Glenn Youngkin has made his second set of appointments to the public body that makes decisions for the University of Virginia. They include two people with local connections.
Let’s start with Paul Manning, the chairman and CEO of the PBM Capital Group. Earlier this year, Manning and his wife announced the donation of $100 million to UVA for the biotechnology institute that will be named after him.
There’s also Paul C. Harris of Richmond who is the executive vice president and chief sustainability and compliance officer for Huntington Ingalls Industries. Harris served two terms in House of Delegates from 1998 to 2002 in the seat currently held by Delegate Rob Bell.
There’s also John L. Nau, III of Houston, Texas. He’s the Chairman and CEO of Silver Eagle Beverages. In June it was announced Nau would donate $15 million to the Karsh Institute of Democracy.
The final new member of the Board of Visitors is Rachel Sheridan of McLean. She’s a partner in the firm Kirkland & Ellis.
