Ronald V. Rosequist
President, Board Member, Science Advisory Board Member, Investment Committee Member
Mr. Rosequist is the president of the Shurl and Kay Curci Foundation. He became involved with the Curci Foundation after a long partnership with Mr. and Mrs. Curci in a commercial real estate development in Oakland, California, and as a friend of Shurl and Kay.
After four-plus years as an officer in the U.S. Navy, including two tours on the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk, Mr. Rosequist turned to the legal profession. His law firm, Crosby Heafey Roach & May, was initially located in Oakland, and expanded to other California cities until, as a firm of 300 lawyers, it merged with international law firm Reed Smith in 2003. Mr. Rosequist was managing partner of the Crosby firm and/or on its executive committee during most of the years from 1987 until the merger.
Mr. Rosequist retired from the legal profession in 2009 after 40 years of practice as a business lawyer focusing on real estate, corporate, and merger & acquisition work. His clients included real estate developers and owners, international businesses, private family-owned companies and philanthropic organizations and individuals. He served on many community and philanthropic boards, but now focuses those efforts on the activities of the Curci Foundation.
Mr. Rosequist received his B.A. from Occidental College in Los Angeles, and his J.D. from Hastings College of the Law in 1969. He has been a member of the Board of Directors of the Curci Foundation since 2006.
