New UNT regents appointed

Gov. Rick Perry appointed three new members of the UNT System Board of Regents. G. Brint Ryan (’88, ’88 M.S.), founder, CEO and managing principal of Ryan Inc., a leading tax services firm located in Dallas, and Steve Mitchell (’85, ’85 M.S.), a lead business systems analyst for Thomson Reuters, each received their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in UNT’s five-year accounting program. Michael R. Bradford is a Midland County judge and an oil and gas producer. The three new regents replaced board members whose terms expired this year and will serve until 2015.

The board elected C. Dan Smith (’62) to serve as the new chair, and Jack A. Wall (’64) will serve as vice chair. Jennifer Ozan, a student at the UNT Health Science Center at Fort Worth, is the UNT System’s new student regent.
