Biografía

Scott J. Svonkin is serving on his sixth year on the Board of Trustees, previously serving as the Board’s President for three years. Svonkin was elected to serve on the LACCD board in 2011 and re-elected in 2015.

Svonkin understands the importance of fiscal management, and has devoted his career ensuring that public funds are spent properly and within strict guidelines. Scott believes adherence to tight budgets provides more and better public services to everybody in the community; more and better schools, more and better public safety, more and better roads. He could increase the list ad infinitum.

That is why Scott is honored to serve as a member of President Obama’s College Promise National Advisory Board, part of the campaign to allow responsible students to attend two years at a community college tuition-free. He is serving a three-year term in this role.

Svonkin comes from a strong business background before entering public service having risen through the ranks at Prudential where he received the company’s Community Champions Rising Star Award for his commitment to helping others and the Hero Award for creating a voter registration and grassroots-lobbying program. As a health care executive, he arranged for his company to donate almost one thousand computers to public schools.

Svonkin also served as the Chief of Public Affairs and Government Relations for Los Angeles County Assessor Jeffrey Prang. In that position, he was part of the leadership team that stabilized an office rocked by scandal.

Furthermore, Scott served on the board of the Children’s Hospital L.A. Huckleberry Fund and on the California Respiratory Board where his fellow members elected him President shortly after his appointment. Also, Scott is a member of the Board of Directors of the California Credit Union—a billion-dollar financial institution, and is also Chairman of the Los Angeles County Insurance Commission.

This strong fiscal expertise has served him well. Although a high school dropout, Trustee Svonkin enrolled at Pasadena City College, went on to get a B.A. at California State University, Northridge, and served on the San Gabriel Unified School District Board before being elected to his current position, where he has helped guide the largest community district in the nation to a solid financial footing backed by a prudent reserve.

Moreover, he twice served as President of the Los Angeles County School Trustees Association and has served on the Los Angeles Valley College Foundation Board, the California State University, Northridge Legislative Advisory Council, the LA PROSPER Board of the Los Angeles Community College District, and the Center for Southern California Studies Advisory Board.
