Richard W. Palmer will join the Board of Trustees at its next full meeting in October 2012.

His career in investment management has included success as a portfolio manager and vice president at T. Rowe Price (1969-89), as vice president and partner at Alex Brown Investment Management (1989-2008), and as partner at Brown Advisory after its purchase of Alex Brown Investment Management in 2008.  

Palmer served on the board of the former Lutheran Hospital in Baltimore from 1974-86 and as its vice chairman from 1981-94.

In 2011, he was elected to the advisory board of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Palmer spent nearly two decades investing a portion of the College’s endowment during his tenure at both Alex Brown Investment Management and Brown Advisory until he retired in June 2011.

Palmer earned a bachelor’s degree in Economics at Colgate University in New York. He and his wife, Susan, established a scholarship at McDaniel in 2008 that annually awards support to a deserving student from Baltimore City.
