AHA! is pleased to announce the appointment of dynamic duo Rand Rosenberg and Bobby Shand as its new board co-presidents.
Rand began his involvement as a volunteer in AHA!’s in-school program, working alongside AHA! facilitators at San Marcos High School. Impressed with the efficacy of the program and recognizing the students’ need for the critical social-emotional skills AHA! provides, Rand joined the board in 2018.
Rand most recently held the position of Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Development at PG&E Corporation. PG&E, which oversees one of the country’s largest and greenest generation portfolios, is recognized as an industry leader on the issue of climate change and the importance of reducing man-made greenhouse gases. Deeply empathetic and caring, Rand brings both heart and acumen to his new position.
Bobby Shand founded TSG (The Shand Group) in 1980 and has helped guide successful marketing initiatives for such well-recognized brands as Platinum Guild International, GIA (Gemological Institute of America), IWC, Tag Heuer, Absolut Vodka, and Rio Tinto. Bobby joined the AHA! board in 2012 and guided AHA!’s rebranding strategy as well as a recent redesign of the website. Bobby brings expertise in marketing to AHA! at a time where its programs are deserving of a wider audience. He is committed to applying AHA!’s work at scale in order to make Santa Barbara a model community where all feel safe, seen, and connected.
