New Trustees Join NYSTRS Board


Jennifer J. Longtin, an insurance executive from Ballston Lake, and Christopher Morin, a retired investment banking executive from Scarsdale, have been elected by the New York State Board of Regents to three-year terms on the NYSTRS Board. Their terms began July 1.

The Regents also re-elected Daniel J. Hogarty Jr., a retired bank executive from Troy, to the NYSTRS Board.

Longtin and Morin replaced Michael J. Masse, a banking executive from Fayetteville, and Stephen P. Feehan, a financial services executive from Windsor. Masse had been on the Board since 2009 while Feehan was first elected in 2016.

An insurance professional with extensive experience in the industry, Longtin is a graduate of Siena College with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, accounting and management.

Morin was elected to the Scarsdale Board of Education in 2014 after retiring from banking. He spent most of his career working in the investment banking department at Credit Suisse in New York, London, Zurich and Hong Kong, most recently as head of strategy.
