Gov. Mark Warner has announced the appointment of three new members to George Mason University’s Board of Visitors (BOV) and the reappointment of Sudhakar Shenoy, founder, chairman, and CEO of Information Management Consultants Inc. They will serve four-year terms.

The new members are Kathleen M. de Laski, president of the Sallie Mae Fund; Charlie H. Mills III, founder and CEO of Salera Capital Management; and D. Jean Wu, group vice president of Anteon Corp. and founder of Integrated Management Services Inc. The three new members replace David Anderson, Richard Fink, and Gary Shapiro.

De Laski is newly appointed to her position as head of Sallie Mae’s philanthropic arm, a nonprofit established to help open the doors of higher education for low-income and minority families. A resident of McLean, Va., she earned her master’s of public administration at Harvard University and her undergraduate degree in political science and English at Duke University.

Mills’ company, Salera, has provided financing and counseling to more than 300 businesses. Between 2002 and 2004 Mills served as director of the Virginia Department of Business Assistance. He is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and resides in Loudoun County.

The company Wu founded provides information technology solutions with emphasis in information security, infrastructure security, application development, and research development involving artificial intelligence. It was acquired by Anteon, a leading provider of IT solutions to government clients, last year. No stranger to George Mason, Wu currently serves on the George Mason University Foundation Board of Trustees and the Diversity Advisory Board of the university. She is a George Mason alumna, with an MS in Information Science.
