Point University announced today that Khalilah Cooper, executive director of design at Chick-fil-A, has been named to its board of trustees.

“I’m thrilled to add Khalilah to our board of trustees,” said Dean Collins, president of Point. “Her expertise and education will be an asset as we continue to focus on fulfilling our mission of providing an excellent, Christ-centered education to our students.”

Cooper, who resides in Fayetteville, Georgia, earned a bachelor’s degree in materials science and engineering from Cornell University. She then went on to earn an MBA from Harvard Business School. In 2005, she began working with Johnson & Johnson and helped design and launch new product lines.

In 2008, Cooper left Johnson & Johnson to serve as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company before joining the team at Chick-fil-A in 2013. In her first role, she helped develop and launch a mobile payment option on the Chick-fil-A app. During her 10-year career with Chick-fil-A, Cooper has served in a variety of roles, all focused on customer experience.

“I am humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve Point University as a new member of the board of trustees,” said Cooper. “Point University’s mission aligns with my personal, professional, and spiritual passions to live out my faith in the marketplace and invest in the next generation of kingdom builders. I look forward to offering my heart, head and hands to the University for God’s glory.”
