Paul Danos, dean of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, has been appointed to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H) Board of Trustees. He will also serve on the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health (D-HH) Board.
Danos, whose expertise includes financial accounting, corporate governance and higher education, will chair the finance committee of the board and serve as treasurer for the D-H and D-HH Boards.
“Dartmouth-Hitchcock finds itself in times of exciting opportunity, accompanied necessarily by complex challenges,” says Professor Robert A. Oden, chairman of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Board. “As the board works with our CEO, James Weinstein, to shape what we believe will be the health care models of the future, it is essential that we continue to fulfill our responsibility for financial stewardship. We are fortunate to have right here, at Dartmouth’s Tuck School, one of America’s business education leaders, and we are more fortunate still that Dean Paul Danos has agreed to join our board.”
Danos has been dean of the Tuck School since 1995 and is one of the longest serving deans in management education. During his tenure, Tuck has consistently been cited for the excellence of its MBA program with student qualifications, employment levels, and compensation rates for its graduates that are at or near the highest in the world.
“In recent years, the linkages between Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Tuck have increased dramatically,” says Danos. “Our students have been engaged in a number of analytical and improvement projects aimed at improving D-H operations; and Tuck has benefited from the expertise of D-H professionals, particularly through our Masters in Health Care Delivery Science Program.”
