IU Foundation adds two Kelley alums to board

Rick Johnson
Congratulations to Kelley School of Business alums Rick Johnson, BS'81,and Quinn Buckner, BS'76, who have been elected to the IU Foundation Board of Directors.

Johnson is the owner, president and CEO of Johnson Ventures, which he started with his father, Dick Johnson. The family has long been supporters of IU, and made a generous gift to the Kelley School to create our Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation in 1998.

Quinn Buckner
Buckner is vice president of communications for Pacers Sports & Entertainment. While at IU, he was the captain of the 1976 NCAA Championship basketball team, and also led the USA's basketball team to a gold medal in the 1976 Olympics before becoming an NBA player for 10 years and then coaching the Dallas Mavericks, now owned by another Kelley alum, Mark Cuban.

Good to see Kelley alums continue to be leaders and give back to the university in many ways.
