LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointments of Paul Mead, of Traverse City, and Ronald Schrieber, of Roscommon, to the Michigan Veterans' Facilities Board of Managers.

The seven-member volunteer board oversees admissions and member affairs at the state’s veterans' homes in Marquette and Grand Rapids.

"Paul and Ron bring valuable experiences to the board and I am confident they will do great work on behalf of Michigan’s veterans," Snyder said.

He is currently vice president of project management for Hagerty Insurance, LLC and has worked for Compass Technologies and the DARC Corporation. Mead earned a master’s degree in project management from Villanova University. He represents other congressionally chartered veterans' organizations.

Schrieber retired with the rank of master sergeant after serving in the U.S. Air Force for 22 years. He later served as a department field service officer for the Disabled American Veterans Department of Michigan, where he helped veterans and their families obtain benefits from local, state and federal government. He also served as a member of the Roscommon County Veterans Affairs Committee. Schrieber earned an associate’s degree in business from Kirtland Community College. He represents the Disabled American Veterans.

Appointees serve three-year terms expiring February 28, 2018. Appointments are subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
