Malin Burnham

Chairman

Burnham Cos.

4435 Eastgate Mall, Suite 200
San DiegoCA92121

Until recently, downtown real estate developer and philanthropist Malin Burnham was a champion to San Diegans. Now, he's taken his efforts on the road.

The native San Diegan, who is the chairman of Burnham Cos., is also the chairman of nine non-profits. Now the avid sailor, who at the age of 17 became the youngest skipper ever to sail to a World Championship in the International Star Class of yacht racing, is once again navigating change.

In August, Burnham made a  $310 million deal with the state to open a Burnham Institute lab in Orlando. During its 30-year history in La Jolla, discoveries by Burnham Institute scientists have contributed to the development of new drugs for Alzheimer's disease, heart disease and cancer.
