The University of Notre Dame's board of trustees has added Dorene Dominguez (pictured) and James Parsons (pictured). Also, Rev. Thomas J. O’Hara was elected to emeritus status. Dominguez is chair of the Vanir Group of Companies, a California-based leader in real estate development, construction and construction management, financial services, and renewable energy. She is also a part-owner of the Sacramento Kings, the first and only Latina owner in the NBA.

A member of the advisory council for Notre Dame’s Institute for Latino Studies, Dominguez earned her bachelor’s degree in finance from the university. In addition to service to her alma mater, she is active in a wide array of community improvement projects, commissions and corporate boards, including CIT Bank and KB Home.

Parsons is a portfolio manager for Junto Capital Management in New York City, a hedge fund he founded in 2014 that focuses on the technology, financial and business services sectors. He previously served as a portfolio manager for Viking Global Investors. Parsons earned his master of business administration degree from Harvard University after receiving a bachelor’s degree in finance from Notre Dame. He and his wife, Dr. Carrie Quinn, also a Notre Dame graduate, supported the establishment of the Notre Dame Institute for Global Investing at the Mendoza College of Business.

A trustee since 2010, Father O’Hara has served since 2012 as provincial superior of the Congregation of Holy Cross, United States Province of Priests and Brothers. From 1999 to 2011 he was the president of King’s College, which, like Notre Dame, was founded by the Congregation of Holy Cross.

Also joining the board in an ex officio capacity as president-elect of the Alumni Association is Brian Davis, a 1985 graduate from Medina, Ohio.
