Covington’s Tagliabue Named Chair of Georgetown University’s Board


WASHINGTON, DC, December 11, 2008 — Paul Tagliabue has been named chair of Georgetown University’s Board of Directors. The board unanimously selected Mr. Tagliabue for the position, which carries a three-year term beginning July 1, 2009.

Mr. Tagliabue rejoined Covington in December 2007 after serving with distinction as NFL Commissioner for 17 years, presiding over an extended period of labor peace and revenue growth in professional football. In his current role at Covington, Mr. Tagliabue advises clients on strategic matters in the communications/media, technology, and international sectors.

A Georgetown alumnus, Mr. Tagliabue sees his work on the university's board as an opportunity to collaborate with the university's visionary president, John J. DeGioia, and its talented executive team to advance Georgetown's important mission of education, research, and service. Mr. Tagliabue has served on the Board of Directors since 2006, devoting significant time to the university's financial matters, medical center initiatives, and strategic planning for new programs and partnerships both in the United States and abroad, including in Asia and Europe. President DeGioia observed that Mr. Tagliabue's "leadership will be especially meaningful now to further our ongoing efforts to enhance Georgetown's mission at this critical time in history."
