Sarasota Concert Association Welcomes Two New Board Members
Robin Radin and James C. Rogers have joined the board of the Sarasota Concert Association.
(Sarasota, Florida) Joy McIntyre, president of the Sarasota Concert Association, announced today that the organization has welcomed Robin Radin and James C. Rogers to its board.
A lawyer and business executive, Robin Radin served as general counsel for Asia-Pacific and for several other leading global financial institutions, including Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse-First Boston. He also founded a biotech company, a high-tech mobile app technology company, and a minerals distribution company. A graduate of the University of Chicago, UC-Berkeley, and Harvard Law School, Radin started his professional life as a scholar and teacher of Japanese history, and was director of the Japanese studies program at the University of Miami in the early 1970s. In the late 1990s he returned to academe, teaching Japanese financial law and regulation at Harvard Law School. Now a resident of Longboat Key, Radin lends his energies to regional cultural organizations and events, including the Sarasota Orchestra, The Ringling, The Hermitage Artist Retreat, and Bookstore1.
After graduation from Auburn University, James C. Rogers served for five years as a naval officer, last serving as the weapons officer aboard a submarine. Most of his business career has been in investment real estate. He co-founded the firm of Adler, Galvin, & Rogers, in Cleveland. Rogers was later affiliated with the national firms, Grubb and Ellis and C. B. Richard Ellis, specializing in the sale and financing of hotels and resorts. Rogers’ interests include a deep love of classical music, playing the piano, and spending time with his wife, Joy, and his extended family. He is a member of Piano Friends, a group of Sarasotans who meet monthly to give recitals for each other, and often the public, at their homes and at various community centers. Rogers is also active in supporting The Hermitage Artist Retreat, for which his wife serves as a board member.
“These two outstanding individuals join a team of dedicated people who are united in their commitment to support the needs of the Sarasota Concert Association, an organization that has represented a vital part of the cultural and social fabric of the region for the past 71 years,” says Joy McIntyre, SCA’s board chair.
