Mayo Clinic is bringing a significant amount of political and financial clout onto its Board of Trustees with the addition of two new members.
Armando Codina and Diana Taylor were officially named as board members at the organization's quarterly meeting on Friday in Rochester.
Codina, a 66-year-old Cuban immigrant, is the executive chairman of Coral Gables, Fla.-based Codina Partners. Codina Partners is a powerful real estate investment and development company.
He has deep personal, political and business ties to the Bush family. By joining the Mayo board, he follows in the footsteps of Barbara Bush, who was a trustee from 1993 to 2001. Codina serves on the boards of many public companies, including General Motors, Home Depot and Merrill Lynch.
Taylor, 59, is a managing director of Wolfensohn Fund Management in New York City. She served as the superintendent of banks for the state of New York from 2003 to 2007. For many years, she has been a very public companion of billionaire and former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Taylor serves on many boards, including Citigroup and Sotheby’s.
The Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees, a 31-member group of public representatives and Mayo Clinic physicians and administrators, is responsible for patient care, medical education and research at Mayo Clinic’s sites.
