Magazine editor to lead UNC School of the Arts -- The News & Observer

Lindsay Bierman, editor in chief of Southern Living magazine, will be the next chancellor of the UNC School of the Arts.

Bierman, 48, was elected chancellor Friday by the UNC Board of Governors. He will start by Aug. 1 at an annual salary of $255,000, succeeding James Moeser, the former UNC-Chapel Hill chancellor who served as interim UNCSA leader since June.

University of North Carolina President Tom Ross said Bierman brings a “rare combination of business and management acumen, strategic thinking, and innovation and creativity.”
