Board chair Bell to serve second term

Larry Bell, vice-chair of food services company Shato Holdings Ltd. and chair of its subsidiary White Spot Ltd., has been appointed for a second term as chair of UBC's Board of Governors.

"Our strategic plan clearly defines our challenges," says Bell. "What we have to do as a board and an institution is to stay the course of Trek 2000."

Bell was first appointed to the 15-member board in 1997 and named chair in April of 2000. A UBC Arts graduate, he completed a master's degree in California and then served the province as secretary to the BC Treasury Board, and deputy minister in the Housing and Transit, Lands, Parks and Housing, and Finance ministries.

He has served as chair and CEO of BC Hydro, CEO of VanCity Savings Credit Union and on many boards including the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, the Vancouver Board of Trade and the Conference Board of Canada.

In 1991, Bell's management innovations were recognized with the Vanier Medal from the Institute of Public Administration. He is also currently a director of the Vancouver Hospital Foundation.

His term runs until Aug. 31, 2002.
