Two veeps better than one?

THANKS TO some responses to  my previous blog on the University of Akron Board of Trustees and its "two-veep" pecking order,  here is how it was explained:

At some point in his position as assistant secretary of the board, Russell Sibert prevailed upon then-trustee Rainy Stitzlein to have the board add  vice president to his title.  He thought it would add lustre to his resume if  he went job hunting, which he did from time to time before arriving at the Board of Trustees.   She managed to make it happen, which put him on a higher salary track.  Not much was made of it for public consumption at the time, although Sibert's rapid rise at the board raised some eyebrows within the UA family. Bizarre, for a public university,  but true.    For more details, read the earlier blog.
