exists today as the legacy of the senior political and banking
relationships developed 50 years ago by its "professor emeritus". The
founder, a West Point graduate, served with distinction as a national
security advisor to US president, Lyndon Baines Johnson.
The current BCC chairman is the founder's chosen successor, close
friend and business protege. Today he and his supporting directors
comprise the operational and banking executive structure of the trust.
The BCC principal, an economics graduate of UC Berkeley, achieved
academic distinction in his early career by assisting in the
development of one of the first econometric models of the US economy,
along with Michael Boskin and other distinguished academics. Mr. Boskin
later went on to become President Reagan's chief economic adviser.
During this period of time, and throughout his academic career, the BCC
principal had the privilege of association with many of the elite of
the USA banking and economic world. Throughout his forty years of
service to the financial world the BCC principal has worked alongside,
advised and maintained personal friendships with many of the top
executives of the United States business world including the founders
of Apple, Sun, and Oracle.
BCC's strategic supporting directors each have distinguished academic
and business backgrounds which include M&A, American Stock
membership, business valuation lecturing and private wealth management
client advisory at top global banking institutions such as Citigroup
and UBS. As BCC directors, these executives are responsible for
selecting the world's most worthy projects for funding consideration
from a global pool of talent. Each director has sole authority to set
the trust's offer for funding and involvement to selected projects.
BCC's scope is global. Its directors and principal as world traveled
businessmen seek the cutting edge of our century's best new
technologies and trends to accomplish the trust's lofty mission: to
affect the planet we live on, and its inhabitants
by the creative, innovating force of enlightened capitalism.
