Del Mar Foundation elects new board member

Tom McCarthy

On March 29, the Del Mar Foundation elected Tom McCarthy to its board of directors.   Born in Rocky Grove, McCarthy grew up in the back hills of Western Pennsylvania. His family moved to Los Angeles when he was 12.

He graduated with honors from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, earning a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering.  He spent the early part of his career as a design engineer for Boeing in Seattle, Wash., and then was recruited to National Semiconductor in the Silicon Valley.  He was part of the founding team of QuadRep, Inc. in Northern California.

In the early 1970s he moved to Del Mar and founded the Southern California offices of QuadRep.  During the ’80s and ’90s he opened QuadRep offices throughout Asia, from Singapore and China to India. Today he serves as the CEO of QuadRep Technologies.

In addition to his business, he serves on the board of directors for the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Dieguito, Del Mar Community Connections, is a member of the Del Mar Rotary, the Electronics Representatives Association, and the Radio Pioneers of Southern California. McCarthy and his wife Kathy have resided in Del Mar for many years.  McCarthy is the proud father of two sons and five grandchildren.

With its diverse programs and grant sponsorships, the Del Mar Foundation seeks business experience from residents who can bring strategic and tactical ideas along with their passion to complement a 15-member working board of directors.   Directors serve a three-year term for a period of up to two terms.  McCarthy replaces Del Mar resident Harold Feder, who was an active member of the Grants, Summer Twilight Concert and Development Committees.
