John Crossman

ORLANDO – The Florida Board of Governors appointed Orlando-based business executive John Crossman as the newest Florida A&M University Board of Trustees member Thursday. A longtime FAMU supporter, Crossman is the chief executive officer (CEO) of Crossman Career Builders, which provides resources and scholarships for college students and young professionals.

He is also a member of the FAMU Foundation Board of Directors and a frequent guest speaker to FAMU School of Business and Industry (SBI) students. He endowed the Crossman Scholarship and another Crossman donation pays for a FAMU graduate to pursue a master’s degree in real estate at the University of Florida.  Crossman founded Club REAL to introduce real estate concepts and investing to FAMU students.

“Florida A&M University has been the greatest producer of innovative leaders in Florida over my lifetime,” Crossman said.  “I am deeply honored to be in a position to serve and support that legacy.”

Crossman was appointed to fill the seat left vacant following the death of Trustee Thomas W. Dortch, Jr. earlier this year. His appointment is subject to confirmation by the Florida Senate. The term expires on January 1, 2026.
