Albany Law School welcomes Debra Treyz ’77—longtime executive at J.P. Morgan Private Bank—as the new chair of its Board of Trustees. Her three-year term began July 1.
As chair of the Board, Treyz plans to invest in and extend the initiatives—such as the rapid expansion of online graduate programs—that allow the law school to offer a broader, career-focused curriculum to legal and professional audiences around the globe.
“We are going to build on Albany Law’s unique ability to anticipate, adapt, and innovate,” Treyz said. “I look forward to working with President and Dean Alicia Ouellette and the entire community—the Board, students, faculty, staff, and alumni—as we imagine new ways to educate extraordinary lawyers and leaders, empowering them to make a bigger impact in the workforce.”
Treyz joined the Albany Law School Board of Trustees in 2013 and served as vice chair from 2017 to 2020. She succeeds James Hacker ’84, who was appointed chair in 2017 and presided over a time of significant growth for Albany Law School.
Joining Treyz as officers of the Board are:
Dan Grossman ’78, vice chair. Previously the secretary of the Board, Grossman is assistant chief legal and compliance officer at Bloomberg L.P. in New York City.
Timothy O’Hara ’96, treasurer. O’Hara is president of the Global Family Office at Rockefeller Capital Management and a member of the firm’s executive committee.
Andrea Colby ’80, secretary. Colby retired in 2016 as associate patent counsel at Johnson & Johnson. She is the founding donor of the law school’s Wellness Initiative.
