Howard Dallmar ’74 Joins Board of Trustees

Howard “Howie” grew up in Menlo Park and attended Menlo-Atherton High School, graduating in 1974. While attending MA, he played varsity basketball and selected Menlo College due to its legendary basketball coach, Bud Presley AND for the excellent business curriculum.

“In all aspects, I had the best experiences of my college life in the two years at Menlo. For the first time in my academic life, I was fully engaged in my classes. Because of the caliber of the professors and the small class size, I was able to establish meaningful relationships with my educators. In addition to academics, socially, I met and formed lifelong friendships with many of my fellow students at Menlo. In fact, I introduced one of my friends at Menlo to my sister and they have been married for over 30 years. Both of my sisters, their husbands and my father attended Menlo College. It is truly a family affair. And, to top it all off, our basketball team won the California Junior College championship with a record of 28-2.”

After Menlo College, Howie attended Pepperdine University, graduating in 1976 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. In addition to his studies, Howie played on the varsity basketball team which participated in the NCAA tournament. Following graduation, he played professional basketball for three years in Geneva, Switzerland and Melbourne, Australia.

After working as an account executive for Owens Corning Fiberglas and 3M Company, Howie began a career in commercial real estate with Cornish & Carey Commercial. Consistently one of the company's top producers, Howie is currently an Executive Vice President and partner with the firm. His area of expertise is representing companies and property owners in the acquisition and disposition of office and research and development properties in the San Francisco Mid-Peninsula.

“I joined the Board of Menlo College because I wanted to get involved and make a difference at Menlo on a personal level. My time at Menlo was a wonderful experience for me and was instrumental in defining the person I am today.”

Howie currently resides in Menlo Park with Kerry, his wife of 27 years. He has two children; Chris, 24, a graduate of UC Davis; and Molly, 21, who is a senior at UCLA.
