FAMU Alum Michael White Appointed to Board of Trustees

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced Friday the appointment of Michael White to the Florida A&M University Board of Trustees.

White of Tallahassee is co-founder and chief business development officer of Indelible Solutions, a Jacksonville-based management consulting company. He was previously a professional account specialist at the Florida Department of Education and the Department of Financial Services.

“As a proud Rattler, I am honored to have received this distinguished appointment by Governor DeSantis.  I look forward to contributing to developing the University’s policies and programs to ensure they build upon the legacy of FAMU,” said White, who earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from the FAMU School of Business and Industry. White is looking forward to helping shape the University’s future.

“In a world that is rapidly changing, it is paramount that we collaborate with both public and private partners to usher in the technological and infrastructure advancements that will be vital to student success,” White continued. “The culture and achievements of our University are unmatched, and I will work diligently with all stakeholders to propel our legacy throughout the world.”

White’s appointment is subject to confirmation by the Florida Senate. He replaces fellow alum, Michael Dubose, whose term expired in January. Dubose, president of Thermo Fisher Scientific, was appointed in 2020 to complete an unexpired term.

“We welcome alum Michael White as a member of the FAMU Board of Trustees. His talent and entrepreneurial drive will be assets to the University as we strive to become one of America’s top 100 public universities,” said FAMU President Larry Robinson, Ph.D.

In addition, Robinson thanked Dubose for his committed service and invaluable contributions to his alma mater.
