EMC Corporation this week announced the election of Windle B. Priem to its Board of Directors. Priem has spent the past 25 years at Korn/Ferry International, an executive recruiting company, including a two-year term as the firm's President and CEO.
Mike Ruettgers, EMC's Executive Chairman, said, "Win Priem brings the type of dimension to our board that we've been seeking. He is a seasoned, independent professional who has proven himself not only as CEO of a public company, but also as an individual specializing in the critical area of human capital - the single most important ingredient for success in a world-class business. Win's experience with the world's largest executive recruiting company brings depth in high-level issues relating to `built-to-last' management structures, compensation, recruiting, and succession planning. I look forward to Win's contributions to our future growth."
Priem, 64, serves as a Trustee of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). He is also a member of the Board of Overseers of the Lahey Clinic.
