Columbus College of Art & Design announced Tuesday that local ice cream entrepreneur Jeni Britton will lead its board of trustees as chair.

Britton, founder and chief creative officer of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, will serve a two-year term at the board’s helm. She’s best known for her far-out flavors, eccentric style and friendship with U.S. President Joe Biden, who shares her love of ice cream.

Jeni’s has been a Columbus staple for nearly two decades since Britton opened her first location inside the North Market in 2002. The brand has since opened dozens of scoop shops in 16 cities nationwide.

Britton also served on Biden’s Small Business Council and as a member of the Small Business for America’s Future Council.
