CICERO — The SRC board of trustees has named long-time member Donald Kerrick as its new chairperson.
Kerrick, a retired lieutenant general in the U.S. Army, succeeds M. Catherine Richardson in the chairperson’s role, Cicero–based SRC said in a news release.
Richardson, the board’s former chairperson, is retiring from the SRC board. She served for 18 years and was appointed as chairperson in 2013, SRC said.
Kerrick served in the U.S. Army for 30 years and retired as a three-star general.
By presidential appointment, he was the principal negotiator on the U.S. Balkans peace delegation that negotiated an agreement ending the Bosnian War, per the website of the American Security Project.
Kerrick became deputy national security advisor to President William Jefferson Clinton in July 2000. He was responsible for managing the nation’s deputies committee and developing, implementing, and managing U.S. foreign and national-security policies.
After leaving the military, Kerrick was a VP at Fairfax, Virginia–based General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, SRC said. In that role, he was responsible for strategic planning, business development, mergers and acquisitions, international business, and customer and corporate relations.
He is a graduate of Florida Southern College and holds a master’s degree from the University of Southern California.
