The Mercer County Board of Commissioners Names New Board of Trustees Member to Mercer County Community College


WEST WINDSOR, NJ – Mercer County Commissioners have appointed Dr. Aamir Rehman to the Mercer County Community College (MCCC) Board of Trustees. Dr. Rehman was recognized as the first person to receive an honorary degree from the College for his extraordinary achievements and meaningful difference in the lives of students.

Having served as treasurer, second vice chair, and chairman of the MCCC Foundation Board of Directors since 2018, Dr. Rehman’s commitment and dedication to the College has a wide reach. “It has been an immense joy to serve MCCC through the Foundation Board and I look forward to serving as a College Trustee,” said Rehman. I see Mercer transforming lives, families, and communities by providing greater access to opportunity.”

During his time with the Foundation Board, the Foundation adapted to virtual events and online giving, built targeted partnerships, launched the Mercer Athletic Hall of Fame, and the Student Emergency Fund which provided financial assistance to enrolled students so they could graduate, and spearheaded the re-envisioning of the Foundation toward “Tuition Plus” for student support.

“We are looking forward to working with Dr. Rehman,” said Kristin Appelget, MCCC Board Chair. “We are confident that his professional skills, combined with his existing knowledge of, and dedication to MCCC, will contribute significantly to the Board of Trustees’ mission of serving the College.”

A private equity investor, Rehman is Chair of Innate Capital Partners as well as a partner at Princeton Stone House Capital, a strategic investment office. In addition to his role at MCCC, Rehman serves as a Trustee of Rutgers Preparatory School, on several corporate and nonprofit boards of directors, and as a Consultant to the World Bank Group’s Finance and Markets Global Practice.

He is also the author of several books and numerous articles on international business strategy, the Gulf states, capital flows, and socially responsible investments which have been published and featured in journals including the Harvard Business Review, McKinsey on Society, and the Wharton Leadership Digest.

A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Business School, Rehman earned his Ed.D. from Columbia University Teachers College. He and his family reside in West Windsor.
