Three business leaders join Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees welcomed three new charter members – entrepreneur Steven Roberts and 1977 graduates George Coelho and Randy Levine – last month at their first annual meeting.

The new trustees officially began their terms in July, bringing the total number of trustees to 32, including five alumni trustees, two recent alumni trustees and 25 charter trustees.

Venture capitalist Coelho has a background in sustainability and energy issues as the managing director of Good Energies, LLP in London. He also co-founded Benchmark Capital in 2000, where he invested in clean technology companies.

A news release said he will play a major role in GW’s sustainability initiative.

As the president of the New York Yankees for nine seasons, Levine will oversee the development of the new Yankee Stadium. Levine previously served as chief labor negotiator for Major League Baseball and was co-founder of the YES Network.

He was also involved in numerous New York City government positions like deputy mayor for economic development, planning, and administration.

Real estate entrepreneur Roberts is the president and chief operating officer of The Roberts Companies in St. Louis. He was the youngest alderman ever elected in St. Louis, where he served from 1979 to 1993.
