Robert D. Beyer, MBA 1983
Provided Hands-on Mentorship to Students and Alumni
His success in investment management is impressive on its own; Beyer's role as a hands-on mentor for UCLA Anderson students and alumni only adds to his impact. Among his career highlights, Beyer co-founded Crescent Capital Corporation in 1991, an investment management firm that was acquired by the TCW Group, Inc., four years later. From 2005 to 2009 he was chief executive officer and a director of TCW, a diversified investment management firm with assets in excess of $100 billion. Beyer currently chairs Chaparal Investments LLC, a private investment firm and holding company, and is a director of two Fortune 100 companies. Beyer's valuable leadership as a UCLA Anderson Board of Visitors member inspired peers to nominate him as chair of the board in 2010.
