The University of San Diego School of Business Administration’s Alumni Council has announced a new chair and several members to its leadership team for the new year.

David Salisbury, director of Business Development for the West Coast Region at Mintz Levin, will be the new chair. Alex Barnes, who was most recently a special projects analyst for Sempra Energy’s Risk Analysis & Management Group, will serve as Vice Chair. Hope Mago of Huntington Capital in La Jolla will serve as the Secretary of Finance and Michael Cole, vice president and general manager of Home Care Extraordinaire in southern California, will be Secretary of Records.

“I’m very excited about our new and returning School of Business Alumni Council Members” said Salisbury. “As the School of Business Administration begins its fifth decade in 2013, this team is going to accomplish great things as we continue to connect alumni to alumni, alumni to current students and as we strive to bring our fellow alumni back on campus, connecting the alumni to the school.

To help accomplish these goals, the Council has formed three subcommittees: the Education Committee, chaired by member Lynn Hijar; the Social Committee, chaired by Ben Wood, and the Giving BackCommittee, chaired by Victoria Crown. Other council members include Cathie Deal, Missy Hart, Jason Sweeney, Burt Brigida, Sean Ferrel, Kyle Fitzgerald and Tim Lyons.

The alumni council’s mission is to promote development, build a strong alumni network and community and host and facilitate local, national and international events in partnership with USD’s Alumni Association and European Alumni Association.

The University of San Diego School of Business Administration is committed to developing socially responsible leaders and improving global business practice through innovative, personalized education and applied research. For more information go to
