An interim president has been selected, as the University of Memphis prepares for a nationwide search.
Brad Martin will serve as the interim president beginning July 1. He is a former Saks CEO, University of Memphis alumnus, and a huge booster for the university.
He replaces Dr. Shirley Raines who announced her retirement on Monday. She will step down June 30, with plans to move to Oak Ridge to be near family.
Dr. Raines has been with the university since 2001.
