SAGINAW, Mich., Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gov. Rick Snyder appointed John M. Kunitzer, CPA, former chief executive officer of Yeo & Yeo CPAs and Business Consultants (www.yeoandyeo.com), to the Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) Board of Control. The eight-person board is the governing body of the University. Board appointments are subject to confirmation by the state Senate, and board members serve eight-year terms.
"I am very proud of SVSU and how it has grown and been an important resource for our community. I will do all I can to help the University continue to be a center for excellence and provide a great education opportunity for its students," states Kunitzer.
Kunitzer, of Saginaw, was CEO of Yeo & Yeo for 15 years and currently serves as principal for the firm, providing accounting, tax and consulting services. He has spent 40 years with the firm.

The SVSU Board of Control is the link between the University and the State of Michigan and meets six times per year. One of its priorities is to select the University's new president. The board assures the financial responsibility for all University funds, assures that the quality of education at the University is consistent with the institution's mission, supports the president's efforts to secure private, corporate, state and federal funds, and interprets the needs of the community and the state which are to be served by the University.
