Muscial Bridges is excited to announce a new addition to our musical family!
After an extensive search conducted by the Board of Directors and CEO-Suhail Arastu was selected as Musical Bridges new Director of Development & Marketing. Suhail's worldly experience and exceptional communication skills won over the selection committee! Suhail joined MBAW's Board of Directors as a member in 2010 and became Vice President in 2013. During this time he proved to be a brilliant developer. Last month he resigned from the Board of Directors and stepped into the "crystal shoes" of Director of Development & Marketing.
Suhail Arastu was raised in San Antonio and completed his Bachelors of Arts & Science in Classics and Neurobiology at the University of California, Berkeley while competing in NCAA Gymnastics. In Philadelphia he continued research and began graduate studies before realizing he needed a break from academia and moved to a small fishing village in Japan for what he likes to call his "time at Walden Pond." After a year and a half of contemplation, deep sea fishing, hiking, skiing and teaching he began working in development, traveling the world by ship under the auspices of the United Nations Economic & Social Council. In 2008 he returned to San Antonio to assist with the expansion of the family business-Alamo Gymnastics Center and Live Oak Allergy & Asthma Clinic. He serves on the boards of San Antonio Museum of Arts, Mind and Science Foundation and Anuja San Antonio. All of us in Musical Bridges are extremely excited to welcome Suhail as a member of our team and are looking forward to many years of exciting projects together!
