Former banking executive Richard M. Rosenberg was named chair of the UCSF Foundation at the quarterly Board of Directors meeting in February, replacing Barbara Bass Bakar, who served as chair for six years.
Rosenberg is the retired chair and CEO of the Bank of America Corporation and Bank of America NT&SA. He has been a director of many companies and a board member of numerous nonprofit organizations, including the California Institute of Technology, University of Southern California, San Francisco Symphony Association, and United Way of the Bay Area.
During his long tenure with the UCSF Foundation, Rosenberg has chaired its audit and finance committees and served on its marketing committee. He has also been a member of the UCSF Medical Center Executive Council, a business advisory board for UCSF's clinical enterprise.
"Dick has lent years of invaluable support to UCSF," says Jim Asp, Associate Vice Chancellor for University Development and Alumni Relations. "We are extremely pleased to welcome him as chair of the UCSF Foundation."
"I am honored to be named chair," Rosenberg affirms. "I believe strongly in the goals of the Foundation and am delighted to help it achieve those goals."
Three new UCSF Foundation board members were elected at the Foundation's Annual Meeting in October:
- Ron Conway, founder and general partner of Angel Investors LP;
- Eve Epstein Jaffe, clinical social worker and member of the UCSF Cancer Council; and
- Steven Merrill, general partner of the investment partnership Merco Ventures.
