The College of Business Administration at San Diego State University (SDSU) announced recently that David Menashe and Peter Zahn have joined the college’s board of directors.

Menashe, a 30-year veteran of the financial services industry, is currently the senior vice president of investments at the Merrill Lynch affiliate located in Rancho Santa Fe. He is also a Director’s Cabinet member of the SDSU Athletic Department.

“It is a privilege to serve on the advisory board of one of the best-in-class business schools in the state,” said Menashe. “I am personally committed to providing our business students with an outstanding learning environment and I look forward to contributing toward the continued progress and development of the college.”

Zahn, a local business attorney and member of the Solana Beach City Council, is the president of the Moxie Foundation whose mission is to foster innovation and entrepreneurship. The Zahn family and the Moxie Foundation established the Zahn Center for Technical Innovation at SDSU to serve as a business incubator for the university’s students, faculty and alumni.

“As a member of the board, I look forward to engaging my fellow entrepreneurs and industry veterans as we offer our students the opportunity to pursue new business ventures in addition to their academic entrepreneurial education,” said Zahn.

“David and Peter’s outstanding business insight and considerable experience in fields of entrepreneurship, business law and finance will be of great value to the College of Business’ board,” said Dr. Michael Cunningham, dean of the College of Business Administration. “Their passion for excellence will significantly influence on our faculty, our college and our students.”
