University of the Pacific's Board of Regents voted to add four new members who bring complementary professional skills and leadership experience to the University's governing body. The four new Regents were elected in a special session on July 17. Each will serve a three-year term extending through June 30, 2017.
The new Regents come from varied walks of life: Norman E. Allen is a partner and senior vice president of a major San Francisco-based insurance firm; Charles Berolzheimer is a prominent Stockton businessman; Dr. Virginia Chen is president of a Covina pharmacy; and Janet Y. Spears had a long career in engineering and marketing before heading an East Bay Area nonprofit organization. All are graduates of University of the Pacific or have had family graduate from Pacific. Each has shown an unwavering support of the University.
