Womack to lead Northwest Christian.

Byline: The Register-Guard

Northwest Christian University announced Tuesday that Joseph Womack has been named the Eugene institution's 10th president.

Womack will replace David Wilson, who announced last spring he would be resigning in June 2010 to spend more time with his family in the Midwest.

"We interviewed several very strong candidates who could have been successful at NCU," former Eugene Mayor Jeff Miller, a trustee and alum who led the national search committee, said in a statement. "In the end, Dr. Womack's commitment to excellence, education, breadth of experience and knowledge about NCU's unique qualities and opportunities made him the hands-down choice to lead the university into the next decade and beyond."

Womack currently is vice president for university advancement at William Jessup University in Northern California, where he is responsible for fundraising, marketing, communications and church, alumni, community, media and government relations.

He was responsible for leading the university's physical relocation from San Jose to Rocklin, Calif.

Womack began his career nearly 20 years ago as an admissions counselor at Northwest Christian.

Wilson will continue as NCU president until Womack begins work in June 1.
