Courtemanche Elected to Board of Trustees
January 10, 2011
Robert Courtemanche has been elected to the Emerson College Board of Trustees. A resident of Dover, Massachusetts, for the past 10 years, Courtemanche worked at Wellington Management Company, LLP for 34 years, retiring in 2000 as Senior Vice President, Securities Analyst and Portfolio Manager for institutional accounts.
“Emerson College is extremely fortunate to have attracted someone with Bob’s formidable investment experience to the Board of Trustees,” said President Jacqueline Liebergott. “In these challenging economic times, the Emerson community should take great comfort in knowing that Bob is lending his advice to our senior management team.”
At Emerson, he has served since 2009 as a non-Trustee member of the College’s Finance Committee and is currently the Chair of the Investment Committee. He is also a member of the Board for the Emerson-affiliated literary magazine Ploughshares.
Courtemanche is a member of the Board of Directors of The Center for Arts in Natick (TCAN), where he is a member of the Foundation Grants Committee and Finance Committee, and has been an active box office volunteer since March 2001. He also serves as a Trustee for Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston. One of his great interests is adopting greyhounds (he has two, Augustus and Elizabeth) and supporting Greyhound Friends in Hopkinton.
A member of the Harvard College Class of 1962, Courtemanche also attended Columbia Law School.
