Rick Perry to take over as TAF president and CEO
BATON ROUGE - Ronald Richard announced on Friday that he is stepping down as President and CEO of the Tiger Athletic Foundation and will be replaced by current Senior Vice-President Rick Perry.
Richard will remain with the nonprofit organization that supports LSU athletics as president and CEO Emeritus.
New President and CEO Rick Perry has been with TAF for the past 27 years and said he is thrilled to take over the position.
Under Richard's leadership, TAF and LSU created the Cox Communication Center for Student Athletes, the LSU Football Operations Center, and expansions to Tiger Stadium's west side and south end zone.
"The generosity and support by the TAF members has played a vital role in what has been perhaps the greatest two decades in LSU athletic history. Our goal will be to not only provide support to continue that legacy of excellence, but to strive to reach even greater heights." said Perry.
