Rivier appoints two new board members


NASHUA – Rivier University officials have appointed two new members to the Board of Trustees: Reginald A. Wilburn of Dover and Daniel Sauvageau of Windham.

“Their unique knowledge augments the depth and breadth of our leadership team, informing and aiding the university in this critical period of expansion,” Rivier President Sister Paula Marie Buley, IHM, said.

Safeguarding data and personnel for Fidelity Investments, Sauvageau serves as Chief Security Officer and is responsible for a team of more than 300 security professionals performing operations, investigations, due diligence, and background vetting functions for the company’s businesses across North America, Europe, and Asia.

Sauvageau is an alumnus; he earned his MBA from Rivier in 1995.

Wilburn is an associate professor of English, specializing in African-American literature and culture, the poet Milton, and intertexuality studies; he teaches the art of critical thinking, reading, and writing through the science of literary study. Prior to his career in higher education, Wilburn served in the U.S. Marine Corps.


Wilburn and Sauvageau join the board at a pivotal time in the university’s history – as it prepares to break ground on a 30,000-square-foot Science and Innovation Center through its Vision 2020 strategic plan.
