Students of Georgetown, Inc. and the Georgetown University Alumni and Student Federal Credit Union selected new boards this week. Board transitions will occur Mar. 1 for both entities.
Lizzy Magill (COL ’14) was named The Corp’s new president and CEO, having previously served as a barista and director at Uncommon Grounds.
“When I joined The Corp, I just wanted to make new friends. I could not be more fortunate to have this opportunity to give back to an organization that has given so much to me,” Magill said.
GUASFCU named Chris Kelly (COL ’14) as its new CEO. Kelly has been with the credit union since fall 2010, beginning as a teller his freshman year. He said he was excited about the new position.
“The biggest thing for me is directing a Georgetown tradition,” Kelly said. “I’m really looking forward to giving back to the Georgetown community.”
Joining Magill on The Corp’s new board are new Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Rashaad Eshack (SFS ’14) and new Chief Financial Officer Matt Oswald (COL ’14), the first officer to ever be selected from Corp Catering.
Magill expressed excitement for her planned collaboration with her fellow board members.
“I’m ecstatic to work with [Eshack] and [Oswald],” Magill said. “They’re incredibly bright and dedicated. I think we all bring a variety of experiences to the table. “
She added that she is already planning her goals for the incoming board.
“In the next year, a lot of our energy’s going to go into designing the new service [in the New South Student Center],” Magill said. “But we’d also like to work on continuing our attempt to engage customers in a more standardized way across operations.”
Outgoing CEO Mike West (COL ’13) said he was confident in the new board’s leadership capabilities.
“We’re very excited to have them,” West said. “It’ll be a big year for The Corp with the expansion of our services into the New South Student Center, and I know that these kids are the people for the job.”
For his part, Kelly is looking to expand GUASFCU’s services from banking to serving as a student resource for financial literacy.
“I’m also looking forward to working with [Magill] and everyone else at The Corp,” Kelly said.
Joining Kelly on GUASFCU’s new executive board are Chief Operating Officer Brian Sykes (MSB ’14), Chief Financial Officer and Chairman of the Board Margaret Reilly (MSB ’14), Chief Lending Officer Joseph Santos (SFS ’14), Chief Communications Officer Jessica Parry (COL ’14), Chief Information Officer Michael Matuozzi (MSB ’14) and Treasurer John Triebsch (COL ’14).
Outgoing CEO Nikhil Lakhanpal (MSB ’13) was confident in the new board’s abilities.
“I’m really excited for what they have planned and I’m very confident that they will follow through on all their ideas and initiatives,” Lakhanpal said.
