Global Marketing, Investment Experts
Join Population Council Board of Trustees
NEW YORK, NY (19 December 2012) — The Population Council announces the appointment of two new board members, Terry Peigh, senior vice president, managing director of the Interpublic Group, and Lauren A. Meserve, deputy chief investment officer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
"We are extremely pleased that Terry and Lauren have agreed to join us," said Peter J. Donaldson, president of the Population Council. "They possess a unique combination of financial, communications, and social science expertise and skills, and share a commitment to making a positive difference in the world. The Council is proud to have them on our board."
Peigh joins the board with significant experience in applying social marketing principles to improving health in the developing world. He is co-author of two books on communications for social marketing and previously served as vice chairman on the board of trustees of the Washington, DC–based Population Reference Bureau, a global population and development research organization. Peigh received his B.S. from Northwestern University and his M.B.A., with honors, from the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business.
Meserve, a financial expert, manages the Metropolitan Museum's multibillion-dollar investment portfolio, including asset allocation, investment manager selection, and risk management; she is a member of the Population Council's Investment Committee. Meserve earned her B.A. from Yale University, where she studied anthropology, and a master's degree in public affairs, with a certificate in demography, from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. In addition to her work at the Met, Meserve serves on the boards of the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research and the American Friends of the National Gallery, London.
The new trustees join 16 other men and women from seven countries, who are experts in AIDS, economics, education, finance, international law, obstetrics and gynecology, population, and public health.
