ConEdison Solutions President and CEO Named to The Baruch College Fund Board of Trustees
New York, NY, November 22, 2002 – Baruch College has announced that JoAnn F. Ryan, President and CEO of ConEdison Solutions, was elected to the board of trustees of The Baruch College Fund.
JoAnn Ryan received her undergraduate degree, summa cum laude, from Baruch College and went on to earn her MS at the College in Computer Information Systems. At ConEdison Solutions, she is responsible for leading the company in the competitive energy marketplace and building its business in the related energy services industry.
“We are pleased to have such a distinguished alumnus come back to join us on the board,” said Larry Zicklin, Chairman of the Fund. “Her extensive experience and strong leadership in business, and specifically in the information technology field, will help further solidify Baruch’s reputation as school of excellence in this new millenium.”
Founded in 1970 as an independent nonprofit organization to promote the educational welfare of the students of Baruch College, the Fund bridges the gap between the actual cost of educating Baruch’s 15, 000 students and those funds provided by tuition and by New York State. The BCF, as it is known, has an annual budget of $10 million, which resources support recruitment and retention of outstanding faculty; new and ongoing research; scholarships, career placement services, new facilities and technology; and new academic initiatives and programs.
“I am grateful for this opportunity to serve on the board of the Baruch College Fund and intend to use all resources at my disposal to further the outstanding work done by the Fund,” said JoAnn Ryan. “I committed personally to the Fund’s continued success. As a graduate of Baruch, I am certain that the College provided a strong foundation for my success and I know that it will continue to provide the same for future generations of students.”
