Cancer Support Community Pasadena recently elected three new members — Megan Reed, Bradley Talt and Charles Wood — to serve on its board of directors.
“I am excited to welcome them to the board of directors,” said Michael Healy, president of the organization’s board. “Each of them brings a passion for the work of CSCP and a desire to continue to strengthen our programs and services for individuals facing cancer.”
Reed currently serves as the executive director of the Sheriff’s Youth Foundation, which provides programs and services to at-risk youth in 17 youth centers throughout Los Angeles County. In 2013, Reed served as campaign manager for the Rose Bowl Legacy Connections Campaign, for the renovation of the Rose Bowl Stadium. A 1985 graduate of the University of Virginia, Reed lives in Pasadena and has three children, Chase, Blake and Lindsay. “As a breast cancer survivor, I am eager to serve on CSCP’s board to help expand our reach and enhance our programs for individuals impacted by cancer,” said Reed.
Talt joined CB Richard Ellis in 1983, where he built his career in the commercial real estate arena. During his nearly 20-year tenure at the company, Talt focused on brokerage, shopping center development and asset management. In 2002, he formed B.A.T. Ventures to develop and hold commercial retail properties. B.A.T. Ventures also co-owns and manages 139 apartment units in Anaheim along with an industrial park. In addition, Talt provides consulting services on shopping centers and retail properties. He and his wife, Susie, live in Pasadena and have three adult children, Taylor, Justin and Amy. “I am very excited to serve on the CSCP Board as its mission and goals of serving those affected by cancer are so wonderful and enriching,” remarked Talt.
Wood, a finance professional and educator, returns to the board for his second term. He began his career in corporate finance at First Boston and Credit-Suisse First Boston in 1976. Wood founded C.E. Peterson & Co. in 1989 where he advised on a broad range of corporate issues until retiring in 2011. Wood has more than 30 years of nonprofit experience in Los Angeles County, serving as a consultant to and director of several local organizations, including the Tournament of Roses Association, AAF Rose Bowl Aquatic Center, House Ear Institute and Center for Community & Family Services. “I am delighted to return to Wellness. Since cancer touches each and every one of us in one way or another, I am hopeful my service to CSCP will help enhance the comfort and caring of our wonderful staff.”
