Kathleen Corbet '82 Kathleen Corbet '82, executive vice president of Alliance Capital Management and chief executive officer of Alliance's Fixed Income division, has been appointed to chair the Trustee Development Committee. Corbet, who has served as University trustee since 2000, is the first woman in Boston College's history to hold the appointment.

"Kathleen's talents, commitment, and energy will ultimately help Boston College do its work of educating and inspiring thousands of future students," said University President William P. Leahy, SJ, on Corbet's appointment.

Professionally, Corbet oversees the management of portfolio managers and research analysts and is responsible for more than $150 billion in fixed income portfolios.

In October 2000, she was appointed chair of Alliance Capital Management Australia and New Zealand and elected to the board of AXA Asia Pacific Holdings.

As a Boston College student, Corbet majored in marketing and computer science and earned a bachelor of science cum laude from the Carroll School of Management. In 1989, she earned an MBA with distinction in finance from New York University.

In speaking about her recent appointment to chair the Trustee Development Committee, Corbet stated, "BC stands at a moment of opportunity, and I am pleased to contribute my efforts with enthusiasm and vigor. I am committed to working closely with the University trustees, Fr. Leahy, and BC's fine development staff to meet the University's fundraising initiatives." Corbet is also a member of the Executive Committee of BC's Wall Street Council, a student mentor, and a leading donor.

Currently, Corbet lives in New Canaan, Connecticut, with her husband, Randy, and two children, Dylan, 8, and Ian, 6.
