|Daniel Greenberg 62 is new board chairman|
| Daniel Greenberg, of
Los Angeles, California, is the newly elected chairman of the Reed College
board of trustees. Greenberg succeeds Walter Mintz 50, of New York
City, who stepped down from the chairmanship for health-related reasons.
Mintz, the first Reed graduate to serve as board chairman, will continue
to be a member of the board of trustees.
Dan assumed the chairmanship of the Campaign for Reed College when I vacated that post to become board chairman, said Mintz. He brings an enviable combination of energy, intelligence, and dedication to furthering Reeds historic mission. He will be an excellent chairman of the Reed board.
Greenberg, chairman and chief executive officer of Electro Rent Corporation, in Van Nuys, California, joined the Reed board of trustees in 1975. He recently chaired the second half of the Campaign for Reed College, which raised more than $112 million.
After graduating from Reed, Greenberg attended the University of Chicago Law School, where he received a J.D. The Minnesota native then served as a staff attorney for Californias department of water resources. He joined Telecor, Inc. in 1967, later becoming president and chief executive officer. He began his association with Electro Rent in 1973.
Reed has benefited greatly from the ongoing engagement and generosity of Dan Greenberg and his philanthropic partner and wife, Susan Steinhauser. They have significantly contributed to the welfare of the college, including major financial support for the schools Gray Campus Center and enhancements to technology infrastructure at Reed. Over the years they have also helped advance Reeds admission program and strengthen strategic planning by funding a newposition for a director of institutional research. Support of Reed extends into their family as well: Greenbergs mother, Ruth Cooperman Greenberg, recently endowed a chair in American Indian studies at the college.
