RICHMOND, Va. -- The Honorable Mark Warner, Governor of Virginia, announced the appointment of Astyra's Chief Executive Officer Ken Ampy to a four-year term on Old Dominion University's Board of Visitors. Ampy is a 1990 graduate of the University, and has leveraged the computer science and entrepreneurial skills honed there to great success as a founder and the CEO of one of Richmond's fastest growing private companies. A native Virginian, Ampy is a significant contributor to his community, donating time to the Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce (GRCC), Team Up Richmond and the Leadership Metro Richmond program.

"Ken Ampy brings a first-rate business background and a vibrant personality to our Board of Visitors," said Dr. Roseann Runte, Old Dominion University President. "I look forward to working closely with him to drive our strategic goal of gaining a national reputation for excellence and creating a climate encouraging research and academic growth."

Ampy's work as an executive committee member with GRCC will provide a foundation for achieving these goals. "As I've gotten to know Ken, I have seen his drive in action. He exceeds the goals he sets, and then sets his sights higher," confirmed James Dunn, President and CEO of the Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce.

Ampy lives in Chesterfield, Va with his wife LaTrice, a 1991 graduate of the University, and their two children.
