CATOOSA – During its monthly meeting on Oct. 2, the Cherokee Nation Businesses board of directors named a new chairman as the incumbent chairman left the board and a new member attended her first meeting.

Assuming the chair is Shaun Shepherd, whose positions at the end of fiscal 2019 included the Risk Committee, Real Estate Committee and Diversified Business Advisory Committee.

“I am honored to have been nominated and chosen by the CNB board of directors as their chairman,” Shepherd said. “I look forward to a bright and prosperous future for all of CNB’s entities. It is my goal for the board of directors to provide all support necessary to CNB’s executive team and the thousands of CNB employees in order to increase profits so that we can provide greater dividends to our shareholder, the Cherokee people. CNB remains an economic steam engine to northeast Oklahoma and now operates across the globe. With CNB’s new leadership and the continuous support of our administration, I have confidence that CNB will continue to prosper.”

Sam Hart attended his final meeting before leaving the CNB board. Along with his service as chairman, Hart also held the chairs for the Risk and Cherokee Nation Entertainment Industry committees.

Dr. Lynna Carson was in attendance after being confirmed to the board at the end of August in a Tribal Council special meeting, during which appointees for the new administration of Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. were confirmed.
