Gregory Adam
Haile, J.D.


Gregory Adam Haile, J.D., currently serves as the Deputy Chair of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.  He became the first educator to serve as Deputy Chair of the Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank in approximately 70 years. He is also the Bank’s Audit and Operational Risk Committee Chair. The Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta supports the formulation of monetary policy, provides oversight for Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank operations, and recommends changes to the discount rate. The Atlanta Fed’s territories include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and parts of Tennessee, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
Haile was recently selected to serve on the U.S.- EU Talent for Growth Task Force; Co-chaired by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce and the U.S. Secretary of State, the task force brings together 6 American government and private sector leaders from business, labor, and education to collaborate with counterparts from the European Union to build on existing initiatives from both sides of the Atlantic and to exchange best practices, serving as a catalyst for advancing human capital. He is also on the boards of BBX Capital (OTCQX:BBXIA), the Everglades Foundation, Poetry in America, and the United Way of Broward County.
Haile is also the former president of Broward College. While President, he was recognized as one of the top five community college CEOs in the nation by the American Association of Community Colleges in the inaugural year of this recognition, and he led the College to a top ten ranking (from more than 1000 colleges) by the Aspen Institute at every eligible year under his tenure. His leadership garnered the largest grant and the largest gift in the College’s history.  He received national recognition for his leadership to expand the College’s service model into the communities with the highest unemployment rates and lowest postsecondary attainment rates, thus, the most challenged individuals no longer had to defy time, transportation, and technology to take a college course, but they were able to take free courses within steps of their communities.  This innovative model is called Broward UP (UP stands for the Unlimited Potential of all individuals).
Mr. Haile has served on over 40 boards or committees, including more than 25 chair or vice-chair positions. Annually, Mr. Haile teaches a self-designed four-credit higher education law and policy course at Harvard’s summer school.
Mr. Haile was educated at the Columbia University School of Law, and he received his bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University. He received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Nova Southeastern University and is also a fellow of the Vanderbilt University Higher Education Management Institute.
He is married with two daughters.

How has education changed your life?

Other than my loved ones, nothing has positively impacted my life more than my opportunity to pursue higher education. The ability to attend college was a gift of infinite returns to me and my family. All should have the opportunity to attain such a gift, and I am privileged to support such attainment.
