Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine appointed Scott Borgemenke to the Ohio University Board of Trustees.
Borgemenke’s term begins Jan. 1, 2021, and runs until May 13, 2027, according to a statement released last week by the Governor’s Office. He will fulfill the term of Trustee Eileen Sheil, who reportedly moved out of state and is now serving as a national Trustee, according to an OU spokesperson.
Borgemenke, of Dublin, who received his bachelor of arts degree in economics from Ohio University, is senior vice president of advocacy at the Ohio Hospital Association (OHA).
In that role he leads OHA’s government and public affairs team, serves as a member of the senior management team, and works collaboratively with membership, allied organizations and partners.
Borgemenke previously served as chief policy advisor to Gov. Bob Taft and as chief of staff for the Ohio House of Representatives, the Ohio Senate and the Ohio Secretary of State’s office. He has served as chief financial officer for the University of Akron and as the executive director of the Cincinnati Business Committee, as well as a public and government affairs consultant, according to the Ohio Hospital Association.
“I’m excited to welcome Scott Borgemenke to the Ohio University Board of Trustees,” Board Chair Janelle Coleman said in an OU release. “Scott’s extensive experience in and around state government, as well as in higher education, will be very helpful as he takes on this role, and we appreciate his willingness to serve his alma mater in this way.”
