Babson president stepping down

Posted by Erica Noonan, Globe West April 5, 2007 10:55 AM


Babson College president Brian Barefoot will step down in June 2008, the school announced today.

Barefoot, a 1966 graduate of the prestigious business college, was named the school's 11th president in July 2001. He had served as chair of Babson's Board of Trustees from 1996 to 2001.

By announcing his intention to step down now, Babson will ``have ample time for a thorough search to find the right next president,'' Barefoot said in a statement.
