Governor Scott appoints 4 to Florida Polytechnic University Board of Trustees

Most of the seats on the board that will oversee the startup phase of the state’s newest university have been filled.

Governor Rick Scott has named four members to the board of trustees at Florida Polytechnic University. His choices include Bright House Cable Network Vice President Kevin Hyman.

Comcar Industries president Mark Bostick is also on the board.

Scott also appointed Robert Gidel who is a managing partner of Liberty Capital Advisors and is also on the board of the James Madison Institute in Tallahassee. Joining them will be Scott Hammack who is the CEO of Prolexic Inc. He has experience in information security and health care technology.

Earlier in the week, the board of Governors announced four more people for the board which brings the number in place to eight. There are five more vacant seats, two of which will be filled by Florida Polytech’s student body president and a faculty representative.
