Clarkson University alumna Nancy D. Reyda of New York, N.Y., and the Bay Area of northern California, a managing director at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, has been elected to Clarkson’s board of trustees. She will serve on the audit, student affairs, and marketing committees.
Reyda graduated from Clarkson University in 1981 with a bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering and was a member of Phalanx leadership honorary and Tau Beta Phi engineering honor society.
Reyda joined Goldman Sachs as a managing director in 2010 and has oversight for the Investment Management Division’s strategic infrastructure. Prior to joining the firm, Reyda worked at Barclays Capital, where she was responsible for delivering technology services to the legacy Lehman Estate. Before the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008, she was managing director and chief operating officer of technology at Lehman, responsible for all business aspects of technology.
Reyda came to the financial services industry in 2007 after a long career with Chevron, where she managed various downstream businesses. She also led strategic enterprise initiatives, including aspects of the ChevronTexaco downstream merger. Reyda left Chevron in 2004 to join the turnaround team at Gap Inc. and spent three years in various retail management positions there, before joining Lehman Brothers.
She and her husband, Steve, also from the Clarkson class of 1981, have two children, Stephen and Thomas. They reside in New York City and the Bay Area of northern California.
