    Gregg Tripoli is the Executive Director of the Onondaga Historical Association. He is responsible for strategic planning, fiscal management, day to day operations and staff supervision. He reports to the Board of Directors and serves as the primary staff liaison.

    The majority of OHA’s time, and resources, are devoted to Collecting, Preserving, Processing, Interpreting, Storing, and Exhibiting the history of Syracuse and Onondaga County. OHA is also an educational institution, so practically everything they do has education at its core. OHA publishes a member’s magazine, produces short subject films and hosts a number of fund- and friend-raising events, and consults on many individual and community projects. Gregg Tripoli will discuss all this and give us a glimpse of OHA’s vital and important role in Syracuse’s history and future!

    Upon graduation from Liverpool High School, Gregg Tripoli attended Hamilton College and received a B.A. before receiving an M.B.A. from the Katz Graduate School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh. He began his professional career in banking (money management) and spent twenty five years in the field of Management Consulting, working and living in the Middle East, Europe, North Africa, Great Britain, South America, Canada, the U.S., and the Caribbean.

    After many years of being away from the local area, Gregg was happy to return home to central New York where he grew up and went to school, where his family still lives, and where he has owned a vacation home for over twenty years.
