Ronald Ambrosetti has been named the new president of Our Lady of Holy Cross College in Algiers, according to spokeswoman Carol Dotson on Friday morning.
Ambrosetti, who will begin his term on July 1, is the provost and dean at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, N.Y. He was selected by a 13-member committee after a four month search. His appointment was approved by the college's Board of Regents on Thursday.
"We are very excited that the college has the good fortune to welcome Dr. Ambrosetti, who with his energy, enthusiasm and spirit of collaboration will be the next president selected to continue the Marianite tradition of 'educating hearts and minds,'" said Board Chairman Larry Oney and Vice Chair Kyle France in a news release.
Ambrosetti will replace interim president Myles Seghers, who has run the college since the former president, the Rev. Anthony DeConciliis, was fired in August 2011.
