November 5, 2009 — The Palmer College of Chiropractic Board of Trustees announced Dennis Marchiori, DC, PhD, DACBR, as chancellor of Palmer. His appointment will take effect Dec. 15, 2009.
Marchiori was approved by the Board of Trustees at its Oct. 30, 2009, meeting in Daytona Beach Shores, Fla. He was recommended to the full Board after a comprehensive interview process led by a Board-appointed, seven-member ad hoc Succession Planning and Search Committee. The Committee was assisted by Diversified Search, a Philadelphia-based executive search firm, and a five-member search advisory group consisting of notable chiropractic, higher education and community leaders.
Marchiori will succeed William Wilke, a Quad-City area businessman and a member of the Palmer Board since 1998. In December 2008, following the departure of Chancellor Larry Patten, the Board asked Mr. Wilke to serve until a complete and thorough search could be conducted.
