Webb helped me be successful in college, my career, and in my life. I am honored to serve on the board and look forward to beginning the work this spring,” Deval said.

After Webb, Deval received his Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Boston College. He spent a year at the London School of Economics studying finance in the General Course program.
“When Deval was a student in my economics course, I appreciated his sharp mind and enthusiasm and am so pleased now he has agreed to join the board. He will be a great partner in the important work ahead,” said Taylor Stockdale, Head of Schools.
