Benton, who was NAICU board vice chair, replaces Christopher B. Nelson, president of St. John’s College, who retired on June 21. The NAICU board voted on the transition during their regular spring meeting. Benton will complete the seven months remaining in Nelson’s one-year term before starting his own one-year term.
