President Broderick Among Area Leaders Named to Inside Business' 2012 'Power List'
Old Dominion University President John R. Broderick was named to Inside Business' 2012 "Power List," an annual ranking of the 25 most influential people in Hampton Roads.
Broderick was selected as No. 14 on this year's Power List, a register that was topped by Gov. Bob McDonnell, who is from Virginia Beach.
"The currents of power in Hampton Roads continue to ebb and flow freely as business community elders take a step into the backdrop and the young turks find their own places on the stage of leadership and influence," Inside Business publisher Ed Power wrote in the introduction to the list.
Calling Broderick the "hand that guides the university's six colleges - a responsibility that means overseeing a $526 million operating budget and more than 2,500 faculty and staff at the school," Inside Business highlighted enhancements to ODU under his stewardship, including the creation of the Business Gateway and the addition of the Student Success Center and Learning Commons at Perry Library.
Inside Business also noted his leadership on the university's 2009-14 strategic plan, which includes goals to grow and enhance research and the residential campus, and to form better partnerships in the Hampton Roads community.
The annual Power List also names several "up-and-coming people to watch," including ODU's Alonzo C. Brandon, vice president for university advancement.
