Please join us welcoming Jose Seara to our Board of Trustees.
Jose Seara (dad to Alejandra ’23 and Rafael ’22, and husband to Sandra), joined our San Domenico Board of Trustees this year for two reasons: 1) to give back to his children’s school where he can be most helpful, and 2) to contribute by strategically considering ways to plan for a transformed educational experience during the pandemic.
With Jose’s experience as an entrepreneur and current position as CEO of DeNexus, Inc. a company working in the area of Industrial Cybersecurity, we could not be more grateful for his support. He serves on the board of DeNexus and Young Presidents' Organization (YPO) San Francisco Gold and holds a Masters in Science in Naval Engineering from Polytechnic University Madrid, Spain. In addition to time with his family, Jose counts skiing, sailing, mountain biking and time outdoors as his favorite pursuits. Here, Jose answers some of our #FacesOfSD questions:
