Melissa Beck

Director, The Center for Investment and Wealth Management, Paul Merage School of Business, UC Irvine

By Elaine Murphy & Sarah VaughnPublished: May 01, 2012

Melissa Beck’s experience in tax planning and corporate finance has been an important asset as director of the Center for Investment and Wealth Management at UC Irvine’s Paul Merage School of Business, but she considers her impact on the community as a true measure of success. Under her leadership, the center hosted 30 disadvantaged young women in eighth and ninth grades to live on the UCI campus and learn financial life skills, empowering them to attend a four-year college or university and giving them the tools to become future leaders.
   
Beck’s greatest passion, she says, is making a “marked, positive difference in the lives of others in any way that I can.”
   
In the future, Beck wants to become the CEO of a large private foundation where she can collaborate with others on tackling important social issues.
