The beleaguered San Diego City Employees’ Retirement System board of administration announced the installation of two new members.
James T. Waring, of San Diego, an attorney with Ross, Dixon & Bell, and co-founder of FI Financial, a diversified real estate investment company, was appointed by the San Diego City Council Sept. 12.
Waring also is involved in the River Network, a national environmental organization that supports environmentally sound watershed management and pollution-abatement programs. He is a member of the board of trustees for the San Diego Museum of Natural History, the Director’s Cabinet, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the advisory board of the San Dieguito River Valley Land Conservancy, and the Francis Parker School board of trustees.
Waring, who will serve a four-year term on the board, will receive no compensation. Peter Preovolos, board president, said he will appoint Waring to the litigation committee.
Also on board is Thomas C. Hebrank of San Diego, managing director of Douglas Wilson Cos., which manages complex receiverships and accounting projects throughout the United States. The City Council appointed him to the board on Sept. 6.
As a certified public accountant, Hebrank has more than 23 years of auditing and accounting experience in San Diego, Dallas, St. Louis and Kansas City, Mo., according to SDCERS.
His experience includes budgeting and forecasting, planning and analysis, corporate reporting and the design of accounting systems for large and medium-sized businesses, including financial institutions, real estate and insurance companies.
Hebrank currently is a member of the Kensington Talmadge Planning Committee, as well as an alternate to the San Diego City Planning Commission.
Hebrank, who will serve a four-year term on the board, will receive no pay.
Preovolos said he will appoint him to the audit committee.
The new members were appointed to fill two of four vacancies on the board.
