Goldman Sachs Exec Named to Howard U. Trustees Board

A member of the Sachs Goldman Group has been appointed to the Howard University Board of Trustees.

The university’s appointment of John F.W. Rogers, executive vice president and secretary of Goldman Sachs’ Board of Directors and a member of the firm’s Management Committee, was announced Thursday.

“We were looking for an individual who would add to the board’s strength and breadth of experience and we are delighted that we have identified John as such an individual,” said Stacey J. Mobley, chairman of the board of trustees. “I’m confident that John is going to make a meaningful and positive impact to the board.”

Rogers also serves as chair of the Goldman Sachs Foundation and Goldman Sachs Gives, a donor-advised fund.

Prior to joining Goldman Sachs, Rogers was a senior fellow at the Baker Institute at Rice University and spent several years in government service as Under Secretary at the U.S. Department of State, an assistant secretary of the U.S. Treasury and an assistant to a former U.S. president. He is a recipient of the Presidential Citizen Medal.

“Mr. Rogers is a pioneer in the financial industry, and we are excited to welcome him to Howard’s board,” said Howard University President Wayne A. I. Frederick. “We appreciate his willingness to serve as a trustee and look forward to benefitting from his judgment and counsel.”

Rogers serves as a life trustee and treasurer of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, vice chairman of the Board of the White House Historical Association, vice chairman of the Board of the American Academy in Rome and chairman emeritus of the advisory board of the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution.

He is also a member and former chairman of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association.
