Dear Colleagues,

I am extremely pleased to announce that the GSB Dean’s search has come to a successful conclusion.  John Hennessy and I have asked Professor Garth Saloner, the Jeffrey S. Skoll Professor of Electronic Commerce, Strategic Management and Economics, to be the next dean and he has accepted.  As I note in the press release below,  I believe that Garth will continue the research focus for which the school is renowned, in addition to maintaining its outstanding educational programs.

I would like to thank the search committee, co-chaired by John Roberts, for the exhaustive and lengthy process that yielded this recommendation.  Garth will take office on September 1, 2009.  I hope you will join me in thanking him for taking on the responsibility of leading the GSB into the next decade.

With best wishes,

John Etchemendy
