Washington College in Chestertown has named Jack Griswold, an investment executive, as the interim president of the college, according to a press release issued Monday.
Griswold — an emeritus member and former chair of the college's board of visitors and governors — will replace current President Mitchell B. Reiss and serve until the school hires a new president.
Reiss is leaving Chestertown to become the president and CEO of the Colonial Williamsburg foundation in Virginia.
Griswold, a graduate of Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, works at Black Oak Associates, a property development and investment management company in Owings Mills.
Griswold raised $104 million for Washington College in a 2003 fundraising campaign. His daughter is a 1994 alumnus of the school.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
