Meinig, the chair and chief executive officer of HM International Inc. of Tulsa, Okla., will succeed Harold Tanner ’52, who has served as chairman since 1997, when his term begins on July 1.

“We are fortunate to have a dedicated and hard working board, which provides thoughtful policy guidance to the University. We have a world-class faculty and 19,000 of our nation’s best students,” Meinig stated in a Cornell news release.
