The Minnesota Orchestra has announced the election of GORDON M. SPRENGER as chair of its Board of Directors. Sprenger, who joined the board in 2008, is the former president and chief executive officer of Allina Health System. He succeeds JON CAMPBELL, who agreed at the orchestra’s annual meeting in December 2013 to continue as chair until a contract settlement with musicians was ratified; an agreement was reached by musicians and board on January 14, 2014. Since joining the Board of Directors Sprenger has chaired its Architect Selection Committee and its Board, Development, and Governance Committee. He has also served on the Executive, Audit, and Human Resources committees and as a Campaign Vice Chair of the Building for the Future Campaign. Sprenger’s board affiliations outside the orchestra have included Medtronic and St. Paul Companies, and such nonprofits as St. Olaf College, Luther Theological Seminary, and the Midtown Global Market.
