A Stafford County business owner has been appointed to the University of Mary Washington’s board of visitors after the resignation of Tabitha Geary Tate.

Tate, who had served on the board for a year and had three years left in her term, resigned for undisclosed reasons.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe appointed Carlos Del Toro to the board Friday.

Del Toro is founder, CEO and president of SBG Technology Solutions Inc., a Washington-based engineering services and consulting firm.

A former naval officer and White House fellow, Del Toro is a native of Havana, Cuba. He was recognized by the Small Business Administration as the Small Business Person of the Year in the region four years ago.

A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, he holds advanced degrees from the Naval Postgraduate School, George Washington University and the Naval War College.

He serves as director on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Council on Small Business and as a director on the Rappahannock Goodwill Industries board. He has served on numerous gubernatorial boards in Virginia.

Del Toro’s term will expire in 2017.
