Prior to his shift into philanthropy, Michael Le was a real estate and corporate attorney for 10+ years handling transactions, litigation, compliance and managing internal and outside counsel. His curiosity and desire to shake things up led him to complete his MBA at USC in 2017. This was a transformative experience being immersed in an academic and business community that guided him to his next North Star towards service and philanthropy. While still advising family offices through their real estate transactions, risk assessment and compliance efforts, Michael was able to throw himself in the community to better the lives of ALL Orange County citizens.
After working with projects that helped students with the tech employment gap, he is a director of Emilio Nares Foundation, a charity that helps kids with cancer in California. He is also a board member of Project Vietnam Foundation, and collaborator for non-profits like Cancer Kinship, Veteran’s Legal Institute, Orange County United Way and Girls, Inc. Michael will again be serving as the Master of Ceremonies for this year’s annual dinner.
