Harvard Management Company (HMC) announced today that two new members have been elected to join its board of directors. Tricia Glynn ’02, M.B.A. ’08, and Keith Johnson were appointed by the Harvard Corporation to the board which oversees the University’s endowment portfolio.

Formed in 1974, HMC invests Harvard’s endowment and related financial assets. Since its founding, HMC has distributed $39 billion to the University’s operating budget in support of financial aid, ground-breaking research, world-class teaching, and more.

“We are excited to add the unique perspectives that Tricia and Keith will bring to the board,” said Paul Finnegan, Harvard treasurer and chairman of the HMC Board of Directors. “Their investment expertise with both public and private markets, and experience with endowments and nonprofit institutions make them exceptional additions.”

Narv Narvekar, CEO of HMC, echoed the sentiment. “The HMC board is a tremendous resource for our team. Tricia and Keith both bring decades of investment experience that will be incredibly valuable to our discussions.”

Tricia Glynn is a managing partner at Advent International, a global private equity firm based in Boston. Prior to Advent, Glynn worked for Bain Capital Private Equity and Goldman Sachs. She also serves on numerous nonprofit boards, including the Boston Medical Center, The Juilliard School, the Boston Ballet, and the Women’s Leadership Board of the Women and Public Policy Program at Harvard Kennedy School.

Keith Johnson is the founding partner and CEO of Sequoia Heritage, a private investment fund established in 2008. Before Sequoia Heritage, Johnson helped manage Stanford University’s endowment at Stanford Management Company. He also serves as a director of Brookfield Asset Management.
