An active civic leader, he is also a director of The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, World Business Chicago and the Chicago Urban League, of which he is chairman of the board.
In addition, he is a member of the boards of the Lyric Opera of Chicago, The Field Museum of Chicago, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. In Los Angeles, he has served as chairman of Town Hall Los Angeles, the Children's Bureau of Southern California, and the California Science Center.
