STARKVILLE — The board of directors of Camgian Microsystems Corporation has appointed former U.S. Sen. Trent Lott of Mississippi as an independent director of the firm. Lott’s appointment expands Camgian’s board to four directors.
“Sen. Lott’s significant experience and valuable perspective on business and government will be a tremendous asset for Camgian as we build our brand and expand our market presence,” said Dr. Gary D. Butler, Camgian chairman and CEO.
“I think Camgian is an outstanding young company with great potential,” said Senator Lott. “I’m very happy and excited to be a part of this dynamic organization.”
Lott, the former majority leader for the United States Senate, represented the people of Mississippi in Congress for 35 years and is one of a handful of officials to have held elected leadership positions in both the House of Representatives and Senate. In 2006, Lott was elected Senate Republic Whip, giving him the distinction of being the only person to hold that position in both the House and Senate.
After his retirement from the U.S. Senate, Lott founded the Breaux Lott Leadership Group with former Sen. John Breaux of Louisiana, a partnership offering strategic advice, consulting and lobbying to a wide range of clients.
