“I’m honored to have served with Ann and am gratified to recognize her years of dedication and commitment to the members of Greylock,” said Board Chair Peter Lopez. “We look forward to her continued involvement with the board as an esteemed advisor and Director Emeritus.”

“I’ve known Ann for many years and I’m proud to regard her as a friend,” said Board Member Gerard Burke. “Our board has truly benefitted from Ann’s tireless service, expertise, and generosity through the years and we are thrilled to honor her in this way.”
