Western Michigan University Announces Board Changes

Jeanne H. Carlson of Novi, Mich., and James F. Hettinger of Fennville, Mich., have been elected to serve for 2013 as chair and vice chair, respectively, of the Western Michigan University’s Board of Trustees. All officers serve one-year terms. Carlson replaces William D. Johnston of Portage, Mich., who remains on the board. Hettinger replaces Carlson in the vice chair position. Carlson was appointed to the board by then-Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm in 2007. She retired from the post of president and chief executive officer of Blue Care Network of Michigan in 2010 after a 33-year career that included positions at both Blue Care Network and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.

A certified public accountant, she previously was a staff auditor with the Touche Ross & Co. as well as a private financial consultant. Hettinger was appointed to the Western Michigan University board in 2009 by Granholm as well. He retired in 2008 as head of Battle Creek Unlimited, after 30 years of service with that economic-development organization. He joined Battle Creek Unlimited in 1978 as marketing director, and one year later was named president and CEO.
