The Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate at the University of San Diego School of Business recently announced the appointment of Douglas Wilson, chairman and CEO of Douglas Wilson Companies as the newest member of its policy advisory board.
The board provides guidance on policy and financial support to the center and real estate students at USD. With this appointment, the board has 55 members which includes six emeritus members.
Wilson has overseen the development and management of nearly $15 billion in assets and has served as a court-appointed fiduciary for more than 1,200 state and federal court matters.
“We are thrilled to have Doug rejoining our PAB and welcome him onboard,” said Stath Karras, executive director of the Burnham Moores Center. “Doug is well regarded in our industry and will make significant contributions to our student-centric mission.”
U.S. Bank recently donated $10,000 to Partnerships With Industry, a non-profit organization that matches workers with developmental and intellectual disabilities with meaningful employment.
The bank’s donation is one of several made to PWI in recent years. U.S. Bank employees have also volunteered at PWI sites to work alongside PWI’s Work Activity Program participants. The bank has also sponsored fundraising events for the organization for many years.
“We are extremely grateful and gratified for the generous support of U.S. Bank,” said Richard V. Israel, president and CEO of PWI. “U.S. Bank is a valued partner for PWI. Their efforts have benefited adults with disabilities who want to work.”
The grant was part of the bank’s Community Possible program, which gives to organizations that focus on economic and workplace development.
“At U.S. Bank, we are focused on economic, community and workforce development as a way of investing in the future of our communities,” said Greg Altman, U.S. Bank vice president and district manager.
