President Shirley Ann Jackson cordially invites the campus community to attend a retirement reception to honor Virginia Gregg, vice president for finance, in appreciation for her outstanding dedication to Rensselaer for the past 35 years.

The reception will be held on Wednesday, March 28, at 3:30 to 5 p.m. in Evelyn’s Café, located in EMPAC.

“During her 35 years of service, Ginny has served Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with distinction, commitment, and dedication,” said President Jackson in announcing the retirement. “During my tenure as President, Ginny has been a mainstay and has served with great allegiance. As a member of my Cabinet, Ginny has guided the Institute in successful fiscal management, as we worked to make The Rensselaer Plan and The Rensselaer Plan 2024 a reality. Execution of the Rensselaer strategic plan required significant investment in faculty, programs, and physical capital and has resulted in an evolution of Rensselaer to a more fully realized technological research university.”

As the vice president for finance and chief financial officer, Gregg is responsible for overseeing Rensselaer’s financial planning and operations, investments and capital finance, and internal audit. She also serves as a member of the Rensselaer Retirement Committee and as a member of the Board of Trustees of Rensselaer at Hartford.

Since joining Rensselaer in 1983, Ginny also served as acting vice president for finance and controller. A certified public accountant, Gregg began her career in the Albany office of Ernst & Whinney (now Ernst & Young), the international public accounting firm.
