Joining the boards are: Marymichele Delaney, Chief Human Resources Officer at College of the Holy Cross, Melissa Fletcher, CPA, Assistant Vice President for Finance and Controller at Wellesley College, and Sam Solomon, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer at Brandeis University.

“Growing a strong and talented board has been a priority for us.
