The appointment of Cal State Northridge alumnus Daniel Weinstein of Los Angeles to the California State University Board of Trustees was announced August 8 by Governor Gray Davis.
Weinstein earned a bachelor of science degree in business administration from Northridge in 1984. He will join fellow Northridge graduate Debra Farar, Board of Trustees chair, on the panel.
"I very much enjoyed my college experience at Cal State Northridge," Weinstein said. "It is for that reason that Išve had such positive feelings about the CSU system. My education at Cal State Northridge gave me the chance to pursue my own dreams."
The new trustee said he is acutely aware of the importance of CSUšs role in providing higher education opportunities for Californians. "Itšs one of the greatest systems in the country," he said.
In 1995, Weinstein formed Wetherly Capital Group, which he has served as managing partner since 1999. The firm specializes in raising capital from institutional sources.
Prior to joining Wetherly Capital Group, Weinstein was a senior advisor to then State Treasurer Kathleen Brown, and also served as political director of the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), Region 8.
Active in community affairs, Weinstein has been a member of the California Coastal Commission and the boards of the Los Angeles Sports Academy, the Hope is Helping Foundation and Children Uniting Nations.
Weinsteinšs trustee position requires Senate confirmation.
Also appointed to the Board of Trustees was Kathleen Kaiser, professor of sociology at California State University, Chico.
