Regents Appoint Maher as CEO

 

PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Board of Regents today formally appointed Brian L. Maher as its next executive director and chief executive officer. Maher begins his duties July 6, based in the regents’ central office in Pierre.

 

Board members voted unanimously to appoint Maher, who leaves June 30 after five years as superintendent of the Sioux Falls School District.

 

In brief remarks today at the regents’ board meeting, Maher said he has already been talking to people about the public university system and looks forward to building relationships. About the six public universities and two special schools, Maher said, “I am confident that we can do really good things for the state.”

 

The South Dakota Board of Regents is the constitutional governing body for Black Hills State University, Dakota State University, Northern State University, South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, South Dakota State University, University of South Dakota, South Dakota School for the Blind & Visually Impaired, and South Dakota School for the Deaf.
