The San Diego City Council on March 14 approved Mayor Dick Murphy’s seven appointments to the San Diego City Employees’ Retirement System Board of Administration.
They are Peter Preovolos, La Mesa, the president and chairman of the board of Alpha & Omega Financial Management Consultants, Inc.; Thomas King, Scripps Ranch, the president, chief executive officer and director of San Diego Community Bank; Thomas Page, El Cajon, a former chairman of Cuyamaca Bank and former chair of Enova Corp. and San Diego Gas & Electric Co.; Theodore Roth, Rancho Santa Fe, managing director of Roth Capital Partners, LLC; William Sheffler, Coronado, the president and founder of Sheffler Consulting Actuaries; Susan Snow, Rancho Santa Fe, the chief financial officer of Maxim Systems; and Robert Wallace, Ocean Beach, a partner with the accounting firm of Brodshatzer Wallace Spoon & Yip.
Two of Murphy’s original appointments who withdrew their names this month are Harvey White, a founder of Qualcomm Inc., and Robert Doede, formerly the chairman of Centurian Capital Group.
The remaining six members on the SDCERS board are Joe Flynn, retired deputy planning director, representing retirees; Deputy Fire Chief John Thomson, representing firefighters, and John Torres and Steve Meyer, representing the city’s other employees, all elected. Mark Sullivan and Tom Rhodes from the San Diego Police Department are in a runoff election for a seat, expected to be decided by month’s end. Bill Lopez, the city’s risk management director, was designated by City Manager Lamont Ewell to serve in his place.
Embattled board member Diann Shipione, who had been nominated by San Diego City Councilwoman Donna Frye, didn’t make the cut. Frye, who was out of town, missed the March 14 vote.
