KNOXVILLE — UT MBA alumnus John Boll has joined the College of Business Administration’s Advisory Council to the Dean at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Boll is president of G.A. Richards Group and lives in Ada, Mich.

“John brings a wonderful perspective to the council,” said Jan Williams, dean of the College of Business Administration. “As a manufacturer who supplies manufacturers worldwide, his experiences align with the college’s global vision.”

Boll’s term runs through Dec. 31, 2010.

Boll received his bachelor’s degree from Haworth College of Business at Western Michigan University and his executive MBA from the University of Tennessee in 2007. He is on the advisory board for Western Michigan University, which provides Boll with a unique perspective as to how another state university is run and the importance of private-money funding.

“I am honored to be part of the UT dean’s council,” Boll said. “I am most impressed with our world-class business building, top-notch faculty and student core. I know that UT is postured for greatness among the best universities in the country. I’m glad to be a part of this effort.”
