James starting January 12, 2021.  Ms. Beinecke, who was the first woman to lead a major New York law firm when she became Hughes Hubbard’s chair in 1999, has served as a trustee of the Met since 2010.  She has served as chair of the museum’s legal committee since 2011, and was co-chair of the search committee that recommended the Met’s current director, Max Hollein.
