Jeffery B. Fager, of New Canaan, has joined the board of directors of the Trustees of Reservations, one of Massachusetts' largest statewide land conservation organizations.
Fager has been a member of the organization since 1998. Elected as a corporate trustee in 2010, he is the chairman of CBS News and the executive producer of "60 Minutes."
He is a past president of A Better Chance in New Canaan, and supports Colgate University, St. Marks and the National Park Foundation. Fager, a native of Wellesley, Mass., has a seasonal home next to the Trustees' Wasque and Cape Poge reservations on Martha's Vineyard.
He earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Colgate University.
The Trustees "hold in trust" and care for properties, or "reservations," of scenic, cultural and natural significance for the general public to enjoy. Founded in 1891 and supported by more than 100,000 members, donors and thousands of volunteers, the organization owns and manages 111 reservations -- including working farms, historic homesteads and gardens, community parks, barrier beaches and mountain vistas -- located on more than 26,000 acres.
