News Dean Nicyper '76 Appointed Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Marlboro College
Marlboro, VT -- (May 24, 2010) -- Dean Nicyper of Pine Plains, NY was appointed chairman of the board of trustees for his alma mater, Marlboro College.
Nicyper, who graduated from the college in 1976, had already been a Marlboro College trustee for 11 years, and now becomes the first alumnus in the history of the college to chair the board.
"I appreciate what Marlboro gave to me then and it is very satisfying to have an opportunity to give back. Also, it is always fun to be on campus again," said Nicyper.
Nicyper is a partner at the New York law firm Flemming Zulack Williamson Zauderer. He received his J.D. from American University, Washington College of Law, and focuses on commercial disputes, art law, intellectual property, product liability and securities litigation. Dean has published articles on related subjects in The National Law Journal, New York Law Journal, American University Law Review and Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law Journal.
"After graduating from Marlboro, I was a professional musician for seven years prior to becoming a lawyer," said Nicyper. "My experiences as both a musician and a lawyer taught me many things, such as the significance of thinking creatively when solving problems and the amount of hard work and discipline required for accomplishing any significant task well. I also learned how to manage and grow an enterprise. I hope to draw from all of my prior experience while serving as chair."
