Bruce C. Kusch has been named president of LDS Business College in Salt Lake City. The announcement was made last week by Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which owns the school.
Kusch will become the 13th president of the 130-year-old institution, replacing J. Lawrence Richards, who just completed eight years as president after 15 years of teaching at the college. Kusch is currently serving as chief academic officer, with responsibility for faculty and academic programs. He will assume his new responsibilities on April 17 with an inauguration scheduled this fall.
