William P. Foley II, a director and chairman of the board of Black Knight Inc., says he is retiring from the company board this week.
Anthony Jabbour has been appointed to serve as chairman in addition to his role as CEO. Thomas M. Hagerty will continue to serve as Black Knight’s independent lead director.
Foley will serve as chairman emeritus.
“On behalf of the Black Knight board, our management team and all of our employees, I would like to thank Bill Foley for his incredible vision, leadership and support,” Jabbour says. “Bill’s numerous and valuable contributions have helped Black Knight achieve tremendous success and growth. He has established a strong foundation that we will continue building on in the future.”
“In 2018, Anthony joined a strong, established company, but the advances Black Knight has made since then have been truly transformative,” Foley says. “He has injected an industry leader with the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit of a start-up, and the results have been extraordinary. His strong visionary and leadership skills make me certain that this is the right time to pass on the reins of leadership and give me great confidence in Black Knight’s future.”
Foley has been among the top leadership of former Black Knight parent company Fidelity National Financial Inc. (FNF) since 1984.
