Janice Trebbi Richards

Janice Trebbi Richards is a graduate of Skidmore College.   Janice’s lifelong love for books and design led her to seek a career in publishing in New York City after graduation.   She was among the first female college sales textbook representatives for Harcourt Brace Jovanovich Publishers in what had been a male dominated field for years.   From there, she moved to CBS College and Educational Publishing, CBS, Inc. as a marketing manager. She went on to assume senior roles as Vice-President of Marketing for two different publishing divisions. She was among the first group of women to hold a senior leadership position in the educational publishing group.   

After the arrival of her second child,  Janice became a marketing consultant  and her clients included several Greenwich non-profit organizations and businesses.  Later, she co-founded a marketing firm, Krois Trebbi Richards, Marketing Consultants.   
 
Janice’s first volunteer position after leaving CBS was joining the Board of the Greenwich YWCA, serving as both a Board member and then Executive Vice-President.  Once Janice’s children entered Greenwich Public Schools, she became a volunteer and advocate for the schools.  She served as a Co-President of the North Street School PTA, Central Middle School PTA, Greenwich High School PTA, and as President of the Greenwich PTA Council, representing all 14 PTAs of Greenwich Public Schools.  
 
Pursuing another interest in conservation, Janice joined the Board of the Greenwich Land Trust, serving on the Board for 10 years as a Vice-President and President, leading the organization through its first capital campaign, a move to new headquarters,  among other initiatives.  Janice also served on the Board of the Greenwich Alliance for Education, United Way Early Childhood Committee, and First Selectman’s Media Advisory Committee.   In 2017, she joined the Board of River House Adult Day Center as a result of her own experiences with family members in need of care. She is an Honorary Director of the Greenwich Land Trust, and along with her husband is a member of the Leadership Council of Americares.  She and Bruce have resided in Greenwich since 1982 and have three children, Kimberly, Alex and Caroline, all GHS graduates.
