Peter V. Ueberroth is managing director of Contrarian Group, an investment and management company. He is also an owner and co-chairman of the Pebble Beach Company.
Ueberroth founded First Travel Corporation in 1962. When he sold the company in 1980, it was the second-largest travel business in North America. From 1980 to 1984, Ueberroth was president of the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee, the organization responsible for staging the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games, the first privately financed Games, which resulted in a surplus of $238 million that continues to support youth and amateur-related sports programs throughout the United States. Between 1984-89, he served as the sixth Commissioner of Major League Baseball. He currently serves on the board of directors of The Coca-Cola Company, Aircastle LTD (AYR) and Easton Bell Sports.
Ueberroth graduated from San Jose State University, earning a degree in business. While in college, he competed in the 1956 U.S. Olympic water polo trials. He was named Time Magazine’s Man of the Year in 1984, and his 1985 book "Made in America" was a bestseller. He has 12 honorary degrees, including one from the University of San Diego, which he received in 1996.
Michael S. Robb, executive vice president of the real estate division of Pacific Life Insurance Company, will be the event moderator. Robb is a member of the Burnham-Moores Center's Policy Advisory Board Executive Committee.
