LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 30, 2004) -- Michael Tearney, KPMG professor of accounting and associate dean of the University of Kentucky Gatton College of Business and Economics, has been appointed chair of a new UK committee on retiree health benefits.
Tearney was appointed by Frank Butler, UK acting executive vice president for finance and administration and vice president for Medical Center operations, who said Tearney will select committee members from the membership of the UK Employee Benefits Committee and from knowledgeable faculty and staff from the campus community.
“Dr. Tearney will begin working immediately on committee selection, with the actual committee work beginning in January 2005,” Butler said. He added that before the committee begins its work Tearney will work with selected committee members to choose a new actuarial consulting firm to assist the committee.
Butler said there is no specific deadline for competition of the committee’s work.
