Regis College is pleased to announce Gerald Algere and Clyde Evans are the newest members to join its board of trustees.
A banking executive for three decades, Algere’s leadership helped provide schools, municipalities, non-profits, and healthcare institutions financial guidance and support by developing solutions to prosper and deliver on their mission. In his new role at Brookline Bank, he is the institutional banking team leader in the commercial banking group. Previously at Century Bank, Algere helped build a national reputation for the bank’s non-profit group and oversaw a loan portfolio of $2.2 billion.
Algere’s passion is helping organizations that assist those with disabilities, transitional housing, and those that provide homes for low-income families and others with special needs. He has served on the boards of numerous organizations including The Sacred Heart School, Fontbonne Academy, Greater Boston Interfaith Organization, Youthbuild of Boston, Jackie Robinson Scholarship Committee, and DARE Family Services.
“As an individual committed to service, Jerry shares our passion for promoting the values of social justice, in particular, to underserved communities,” said Regis College President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN. “Through his service on several boards with organizations that provide educational or social mobility opportunity, Jerry embraces our goal of forming individuals to promote a more just and compassionate society.”
“In my 15 plus year relationship with Regis College, I have had the opportunity to witness the institution’s growth and successful strategic transition from a women’s college with great traditions and successful alumni into a co-ed college with strong social justice values,” said Algere. “Having worked closely with the administration, I have always been impressed by their professionalism, commitment to inclusivity, and commitment to educating future leaders as they pursue excellence guided by dedicated faculty who are experts in their field.”
Algere received a master’s degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and bachelor’s from Saint Lawrence University in New York. He lives in Roslindale, Mass.
Clyde Evans, PhD, has built an impressive career with expertise in many areas such as policy analysis, grant writing, and project-management. Dr. Evans is president of CE Consulting, which provides a range of career, professional, and organizational services to individuals and institutions in academic and health related fields. He formerly served as the vice president at Association of Academic Health Centers, director of American Network of Health Promoting Universities, and associate dean for clinical affairs and director of the office for academic careers at Harvard Medical School.
“Clyde, as a former Trustee, knows first-hand the transformative value of a Regis education and the meaningful contributions that the university makes in an array of fields through our devoted faculty and inspiring graduates,” said Hays. “As Regis prepares to embark upon the implementation phase of One Pride, Many Voices: Owning our Future, our new strategic plan that will guide the institution for the next three years, Clyde’s depth of knowledge in the higher education industry will ensure the continued academic and financial strength of the institution.”
“Regis is a comprehensive university offering boundless opportunity for its students to pursue excellence in an array of academic disciplines,” said Evans. “Guided by the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, I continue to be inspired by an institution that welcomes all, without distinction. I am honored to make meaningful contributions to this ministry that provides a life-changing education to its students.”
Evans has been recognized with several awards and honors in the fields of science and teaching. He takes an active role in major advisory committees and has been called upon for numerous presentations and consultations. He lives in Needham, Mass., with his wife Dr. Barbara Marchilonis.
