On the invitation of alumni board president Beverly Harrison Miller ’67, Jeffrey Treuhaft ’91 has joined the board as member-at-large with special responsibility for Internet outreach.
As a Skidmore student originally interested in math and architecture, Treuhaft discovered the studio art program and got in on something new, helping develop the College’s state-of-the-art computer graphics lab. After graduation, he headed for Silicon Valley and got in on the ground floor of another hot new enterprise, Netscape, which he helped lead during its tremendous growth in the late 1990s. He later served as director of Netcenter products for America On-Line. But then he decided to take time for his young family and become his own boss, and he’s now an advisor to several Internet startup companies and an investor in other online businesses.
In their spare time, he and wife Cynthia Jenkel Treuhaft ’91 like to attend Skidmore alumni club events in the San Francisco area. They reside in Silicon Valley with their three children—Conner, six, Alex, three, and Cooper, one.
Treuhaft will serve a two-year term on the board. —SG
