MassBay Community College announced that Governor Charlie Baker appointed new members to the MassBay Board of Trustees. The new appointees are Sandy Lish and Matthew Kahn.
Lish is principal and co-founder of The Castle Group, a women-owned PR and event management firm based in Boston. She works with corporate, education, healthcare, startup and nonprofit clients on strategic communications initiatives around visibility, crises, launches, branding and thought leadership. Her community engagement includes serving on the boards of the Center for Women and Enterprise, Massachusetts March of Dimes and its national Volunteer Leadership Council, Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, Boston College Chief Executives Club of Boston, and WGBH Corporate Executive Council.
Kahn is an advisor and consultant who sits on a number of public, private and non-profit Boards. He was a principal investment professional with over 20 years of experience in private equity, structured lending, and credit investing, and more than 4 years of operating experience as a senior financial executive of two public companies.
Kahn and Lish’s appointments fill the vacant member positions of Sylvia Beville and Kenneth Der whose terms expired this past spring. Der was appointed to the Board of Trustees in 2012 and served as the vice chair of the Board and as the chair of the Finance, Compliance, Personnel and Audit Committee. Beville was appointed to the Board of Trustees in 2013 and served as the chair of the Board’s Student Success Committee and as a member of the Bylaws Committee.
“I am delighted to welcome Matt and Sandy to the Board of Trustees,” said Thomas E. Peisch, chair of MassBay’s Board of Trustees. “They bring different and critically important skill sets to the Board’s work, and the College is fortunate to have their experience and energy. At the same time, I want to express how grateful I am to Ken and Sylvia for their service to MassBay over the past five years. The College’s financial position and its ability to serve the needs of its students have both been greatly enhanced by their input and hard work.”
