Oklahoma State University-Tulsa has welcomed four new members to the Oklahoma State University-Tulsa Board of Trustees this year to fill several vacancies. Lance Lively, Luke Strawn, Billy Taylor and Ginger Kollmann were each appointed by Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt and confirmed by the State Senate.

Kollmann, the most recent appointee, is an executive director and head of J.P. Morgan's Private Bank in Oklahoma, handling all aspects of the region’s operations while managing a team of bankers and investment professionals. She also spent 12 years in the commercial and wealth management divisions at the Bank of Oklahoma and earned bachelor’s degrees in management information systems and management from Oklahoma State University. Kollmann replaces John O’Connor, who was appointed as the state attorney general by Gov. Stitt in July.

Strawn is the CEO of FirsTitle and AllFirst. He also served as president of McGraw Realtors and was vice president for The Lending Partners and Home Team Mortgage, both of Dallas. Strawn is a member of the Young Presidents Organization and Leadership Tulsa and has recently served on the board of Down Syndrome Association of Tulsa. Strawn replaces Brett Lesley, whose seven-year term expired in June.

Taylor is the CEO of Armstrong Bank and the CEO and vice chairman of Ironhorse Financial Group, as well as a member of the OSU/A&M Board of Regents. Taylor graduated from OSU with an agriculture degree. He replaces Tucker Link on both the OSU/A&M Board of Regents and the OSU-Tulsa Board of Trustees.

Lively has been a financial advisor at Edward Jones in Tulsa for more than 17 years. He also serves on several other boards, including the Sand Springs Chamber of Commerce and Green Country Federal Credit Union. He earned a Master of Business Administration from OSU in 2010. Lively replaced the late Sen. Charles Ford after his retirement from the board in April.

The OSU-Tulsa Board of Trustees consists of nine members, with seven appointed for seven-year terms by the governor and approved by the Oklahoma Senate as well as two who are also members of the OSU/A&M Board of Regents.

The new trustees join board chair Pete Patel, vice chair Scott Vaughn, secretary Dr. Chad Phillips, Dr. Trudy Milner, who is also chair of the OSU/A&M Board of Regents, and Michael Coonce.
