Greitens appoints two University of Missouri curators

Gov. Eric Greitens announced appointments Monday to fill the remaining vacancies on the University of Missouri System’s board of curators.

The appointments include Julia Brncic from St. Louis and Jon Sundvold from Columbia.

Brncic, assistant general counsel and vice president at Express Scripts, represents the first congressional district on the board. Sundvold, president of investment advisory firm Sundvold Financial, represents the fourth.

This is the second time Sundvold, a former Mizzou basketball star who spent nine years in the NBA, has been appointed to the board.

In February, Greitens rescinded Sundvold’s appointment, made by former Gov. Jay Nixon.

He announced Monday that Courtney Lauer, a recent Mizzou law school graduate, will serve as the new student representative. Lauer is pursuing an advanced law certification in dispute resolution this fall.

Pending the approval of these appointments, Greitens will have hand-picked six of nine board members, not counting the non-voting student representative.

The curators meet again in September at the Kansas City campus.
