Spencer Burke, Principal at The St. Louis Trust Company and adjunct lecturer in family business at the Olin School of Business at Washington University in St. Louis, has been named the Eugene F. Williams, Jr. Executive in Residence for the Koch Center for Family Business.

As the Executive in Residence at the Center, Spencer will interact regularly with students, offering his expertise in analyzing family business issues.
