The Segerstrom Center for the Arts has elected five new members to its board of directors, which oversees Orange County’s largest nonprofit arts organization. The new appointments include leaders in the county's business and philanthropy landscapes.

In addition, the board appointed Stephen T. Fry to the executive committee as board secretary, and Thomas E. Tucker as the vice-chairman of board development. The positions were both previously held by board member Lawrence M. Higby, who was elected chairman in January.

The new board members are William Wang, founder and CEO of Irvine-based Vizio Inc.; Sinan Kanatsiz, founder, chairman and CEO of KCOMM; Betty Huang, who is a member of the center’s support group Angels of the Arts and the South Coast Repertory board; Shanaz S. Langson, who sits on several committees at UCI, including the UCI Foundation Board of Trustees; and Alan D. Simon, chairman of the family-owned firm Omaha Steaks International. The newly elected members will serve on the board for a term of three years.
