October 25, 2008|Larry Gordon

Orange County hotel and real estate developer Hadi Makarechian, 60, has been appointed to the UC Board of Regents, according to a statement released Friday by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's office.

Before his recent retirement, Makarechian had been chairman of Capital Pacific Holdings, a company he founded in 1991. A Republican, he has been a major contributor to the governor's campaigns.

The governor also announced two other higher education appointments, both to the California Community Colleges Board of Governors.

They are Geoffrey L. Baum, 45, of Pasadena, who has been an assistant dean at USC's Annenberg School for Communication and active in community college issues, and Scott Himelstein, 51, of San Diego, who is director of the Center for Education Policy and Law at the University of San Diego and was deputy secretary and acting secretary of education in the Schwarzenegger administration. Both are Republicans.
