The board of directors of The Bookstore at The University of Montana recently appointed Jon Aliri as the organization’s chief executive officer. Aliri has been with the Bookstore since 2003 and has served as its director of operations for the past 18 months. He began his duties as CEO on Jan. 1. Aliri’s appointment follows a national search during which the board reviewed numerous applications and held on-campus interviews for two candidates.

Aliri has been a part of the UM community since 2000. He earned both a master of arts in economics and an MBA from UM.

According to the Bookstore’s board, Aliri’s experience as a student and adjunct faculty member at UM and his 10 years of experience working for the Bookstore will serve him well as he leads the store during a time of change in the industry.

Together with the board, Aliri aims to support the intellectual, artistic and athletic pursuits of the UM and Missoula communities by providing the highest-quality goods and service possible.

The Bookstore at UM is a not-for-profit organization and has served the campus community since 1921. The Bookstore is governed by a board of directors that consists of UM students and faculty.
