Governors State University (GovState) is pleased to announce Stacy Crook, '07, as the most recent trustee to join the University’s Board of Trustees, appointed by Gov. J.B. Pritzker. 

An alumna of the university’s Master of Science Accounting program, Crook is a Principal and Director of Investment Accounting at Asset Allocation and Management and brings more than 20 years of financial and investment experience to the board.  Previously with  Jackson National Life Insurance and Northern Trust Company, Crook has been recognized by many, including her peers as Diversity MBA’s 2018 Top 100 Under 50 Executive Leaders. 

Crook also serves her community as the Chicago Chapter President for the National Black MBA Association and as Vice-Chair for GovState’s College of Business Advisory Board. She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and United Way of Metro Chicago’s Women United Creating Connections.

Shortly after Crook's appointment to the GovState’s Board of Trustees, she attended her first trustee meeting where Chair Angela Sebastian introduced the new trustee. “The board is excited to welcome a community leader with proven commitment to GovState and we are grateful and fortunate for her willingness to serve,” Sebastian said.

“Stacy has an expertise in process optimization, change management and corporate governance, and we are so fortunate to work with her," Sebastian said later.

Crook joins trustees Sebastian, Jim Kvedaras, and Kevin Brookins as the fourth alum on the board. She was appointed to the board to fill a vacancy left by Lisa Harrell who stepped down in 2022.

Crook received a Bachelor of Science from the University of Tennessee and a Master of Business Administration from Roosevelt University.
