Penn State’s Board of Trustees on Thursday re-elected incumbents Mark Dambly and Matthew Schuyler to the position of chair and vice chair, respectively, for 2019-20.

Dambly and Schuyler will serve as chair and vice-chair for the third consecutive year, both having first been elected to the positions in 2017.

Running against alumni-elected trustee Bill Oldsey, Dambly received 24 votes to his opponent’s 12. Schuyler ran unopposed for the second consecutive year. Every other incumbent officer whose position was up for election was re-appointed.

President of Philadelphia-based real estate group Pennrose Properties, Dambly was first appointed to the board by former Gov. Ed Rendell in 2010. He was approved for a new term in May 2017 as a business and industry trustee after recommendation by a selection committee. Dambly was vice-chair of the board in 2016-17. He holds a degree in real estate and insurance from Penn State.

“Thank you, Board, for your confidence in me to continue for another term,” Dambly said. “I look forward to leading the Board of Trustees for another year.”

Schuyler, an at-large board member, is executive vice president and chief human resources officer for Hilton Worldwide. He earned a degree in accounting from Penn State and was first elected to the board in 2015.

Prior to announcing the election results, the board unanimously approved a $6.8 billion budget for 2019-20 that includes no tuition increase for Pennsylvania resident undergraduate students.
