Former Los Angeles City Controller Wendy Greuel has spent her life giving back to the community — whether serving on the staffs of the mayor of Los Angeles and the President of the United States or as an elected official herself.
She hopes to tap into that experience in her newest role as executive-in-residence in California State University, Northridge’s David Nazarian College of Business and Economics. Greuel began her new job in September.
“I grew up in the San Fernando Valley and have watched Cal State Northridge as it’s grown into the wonderful university that it is today,” Greuel said. “This is my chance to give back to the university that I think has been the foundation for what the San Fernando Valley is today, and has helped shape Los Angeles as a whole.
“CSUN, to me, represents the diversity that is Los Angeles,” she continued. “When I walk on campus and see all the bright and shiny faces of young people who represent the best of Los Angeles, I get excited to know that I can have an impact on making sure they get the best education possible.”
Kenneth R. Lord, dean of the Nazarian College, said Greuel’s experience in the public sector and familiarity with Los Angeles politics and the city’s governmental institutions make her a valuable addition to the university and the college. Read More.
