Myron “Mike” Ullman III Elected to Board of Children’s Health Foundation

PALO ALTO – Myron “Mike” Ullman, chief executive officer of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton Inc., has been elected to a three-year term on the board of directors of the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health.

Ullman, 54, previously served as Group Managing Director for LVMH, an international group of companies involved primarily in the production and sale of luxury goods, including champagne, wine, leather goods, watches and jewelry. In September he decided for health reasons to reduce his travel and focus his efforts on the LVMH Group’s enterprises in the United States.

Before becoming Group Managing Director in 1999, Ullman was president of the LVMH Selective Retail Group and chairman and CEO of the Duty Free Shops (DFS) Group Limited. From 1992-95, he was chairman and CEO of R.H. Macy and Co., which he guided through reorganization and a merger with Federated Department Stores.

Ullman has served on the boards of the UCSF Foundation, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Mercy Ships, Mother’s Love Orphanage, New York’s St. Vincent Hospital, the Brunswick School, the University of Cincinnati Foundation, Lincoln Center, and the Deafness Research Foundation.

He earned his B.S. in Industrial Management at the University of Cincinnati, where he subsequently served as vice president for business affairs. He also did postgraduate work in management at Harvard University, and was a White House Fellow under President Reagan.

Ullman and his wife, Cathy, live in Colorado. They are the parents of six children.

The Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health was established in 1996 as an independent public charity to promote and protect the health of children. The foundation raises funds for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and the pediatric programs at the Stanford School of Medicine. The foundation also makes grants to community organizations that promote the health and well being of children in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, and disseminates information on children’s health issues.

Other foundation board members are Anne T. Bass; Robert L. Black, M.D.; Martha S. Campbell; Roger A. Clay Jr.; Price M. Cobbs, M.D.; LaDoris Cordell; J. Taylor Crandall; John M. Driscoll, M.D.; Bruce Dunlevie; the Hon. Liz Figueroa; Marcia L. Goldman; Laurence R. Hoagland Jr.; Irene M. Ibarra; Matt James; Susan Liautaud; William F. Nichols; Susan P.
