Community Involvement





Bernd has served on the board of directors for Family Promise since 2012 and is currently the Vice Chair.  Family Promise of Orange County believes that no child should have to sleep in a car, in a park, or under a bridge, and that every family deserves a chance to be whole and have a roof over their head once again. They help homeless families achieve housing stability by providing short term shelter, meals, case-management and hospitality.



Bernd and his family have been active members of KOG for over 6 years. He currently  is involved in various ministries. His children attend the church's youth groups and his wife works as secretary of the church office.




Bernd has been active in the German Community in the US for over 10 years. GABA is a member-driven non-profit organization that fosters transatlantic knowledge-sharing and networking among German-American and California business and tech communities. GABA is dedicated to encouraging German-American business and trade.





Since graduating with a Certificate in Executive Management at UCLA Anderson in 2002, Bernd has remained active in the leadership of the UCLA Anderson OC chapter by helping organize events for his fellow alumni.







In 2010 Bernd became involved in the UC Irvine Paul Merage School of Business Executive-to-Executive program and is now volunteering as a mentor to current Executive MBA students to help them in their career decisions.
