UMDNJ Board of Trustees Swears in New Member
Bradford W. Hildebrandt., International Management Consultant
NEWARK — The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Board of Trustees today welcomed a new member, Bradford W. Hildebrandt.
Hildebrandt is the founder of Hildebrandt, Inc., an international management and consulting firm that services government agencies, law firms and other professional service firms. He is recognized an international authority on the subject of law firm management, economics and mergers.
Hildebrandt is the most recent addition to the UMDNJ Board of Trustes, which now numbers 15, since Gov. Jon S. Corzine signed legislation last year expanding the panel to 19 members.
“We welcome Mr. Hildebrandt and expect, as with other trustees appointed by the Governor, that his impressive credentials and expertise will prove invaluable as we continue to implement our reform agenda,” said Board Chairman Robert Del Tufo.
Hildebrandt is a member of the Pace University School of Law Board of Visitors, a faculty advisor and lecturer at the George Washington University School of Professional Services, a faculty advisor to several universities, and visiting professor at the Nottingham Law School MBA Program.
“I’m honored that the Governor has appointed me to the Board,” said Hildebrandt. “I believe the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey is a critically important institution that the people of New Jersey should be proud of. I am eager to begin helping build upon the significant progress already made and turn the University into one of the country’s premier institutions of education, research, healthcare and community service.”
UMDNJ is the nation’s largest free-standing public health sciences university with more than 5,700 students attending the state’s three medical schools, its only dental school, a graduate school of biomedical sciences, a school of health related professions, a school of nursing and its only school of public health, on five campuses.
