Dow Chemical Co. executive Bill Weideman has been appointed a trustee at Central Michigan University.
Gov. Rick Snyder announced the move Thursday, saying Weideman "has shown great commitment" to the Mount Pleasant school.
The Midland resident will serve an eight-year term on the board of trustees. His appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the Michigan Senate.
Weideman is a Central Michigan graduate and member of its accounting advisory committee and development board.
Weideman is executive vice president and chief financial officer at Midland-based Dow. He has spent 36 years with the company. He was placed over corporate strategic development in August and has executive oversight of Dow AgroSciences.
