DETROIT— The Detroit Symphony Orchestra has appointment of Matthew B. Lester as the next chair of the DSO’s board of trustees. He succeeds Michael J. Keegan, senior vice president of human resources and corporate sustainability officer at Chrysler Group LLC.
Keegan, who continues in his role as Vice Chair of Strategy and Innovation for the Board of Directors, concurrently served as Trustees Chairman during the body’s inaugural year with a charge to build a diverse membership and identify a successor to shepherd the Board of Trustees’ portfolio of strategic initiatives. Lester was the DSO board leadership’s unanimous choice to serve in that role.
Lester founded Princeton Enterprises LLC, a privately held real estate investment company based in Bloomfield Hills. He graduated from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s in history and from the University of Southern California with a law degree.
The board of trustees is one of three governance bodies within the DSO organization: a group of 75 of Detroit’s best and brightest minds charged with infusing creative thinking and innovation into how the DSO strives to achieve both artistic vitality and organizational sustainability.
