Wilcox, who came on board in October, has been with Cumberland Associates since 1986. Prior to that time, he was Vice President of the Investment Division at Central National-Gottesman, Inc., now Greenhaven Associates.

Outside of his work, Wilcox's personal interests in the arts have led him to become Chairman of the Piatigorsky Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing live classical music to underserved communities, and Director of Music in the Center, a non-profit organization providing music instruction in city owned housing projects.

Wilcox received his B.A. in Mandarin Chinese from the University of California at Santa Barbara, and his Masters of International Management from the American Graduate School of International Management. He is married with three children.

Wechsler joined the Trustees in December 2002. In his position as Senior Managing Director at Tishman Speyer Properties, he is responsible for the company's acquisition program throughout the U.S. as well as its equity capital and joint venture programs. A graduate of Columbia Business School, where he received his M.B.A., Wechsler is on the advisory board of the school's M.B.A. Real Estate Program.

Prior to his current position, Wechsler was Vice President of Tishman Realty and Construction Co., Inc. He is married with two children.
