Chief Executive Officer Micah D. Parzen, Ph.D., J.D.
Micah Parzen is a husband (to Marguerite), a father (to Abner and Oscar), an anthropologist (Ph.D. Case Western Reserve University; BA UC Berkeley), and an attorney (JD UC Davis). He joined the San Diego Museum of Man (SDMoM) as its CEO in August 2010. Over the past nine years, he and his team have gradually transformed SDMoM from a musty, dusty, and tired institution into a leading edge museum. In 2018, the Museum was awarded the University of San Diego’s prestigious “Kaledioscope Award for Good Governance” award.
Micah currently serves as the chair of the board of the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership, which supports the 28 arts & culture organizations in Balboa Park, and on the Mayoral-appointed Balboa Park Committee. He also sits on the boards of the Western Museums Association and La Jolla Country Day School. His past board service includes the San Diego Volunteer Lawyers Program, the Waldorf School of San Diego, and ElderHelp of San Diego, where he was chair for two years.
