Mr. Mikael Besnainou grew up and did most of his education in Paris, France. In 2004, he came to the United States to complete his BBA at the University of San Diego. During that time, he was interning at Merrill Lynch and was working with Martin Hare. In May 2005, they decided together to found the Jewish American Chamber of Commerce and established a first chapter in San Diego. Mikael is also an entrepreneur and he founded several successful businesses. His latest success is called Dog In Paris and after only 2 years, they reached $2,000,000 in revenues. Mikael’s accomplishments lead him to receive a key to the city in 2007 and to be nominated in 2008 for the San Diego’s Most Admired CEO.
SAN DIEGO —The Jewish-American Chamber of Commerce, brainchild of French immigrant Mikael R. Besnainou, will celebrate its first anniversary in style Saturday evening, May 12, when his honor, San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, will serve as guest of honor at a 6 p.m. reception at the Westgate Hotel.
Proceeds of a silent auction will benefit the House of Israel in Balboa Park, which its officers hope to fully renovate before next year’s celebration of Israel’s 60th anniversary. Besnainou says various items have been assembled to tempt the tastes and open the wallets of representatives of member businesses, which in just one year number approximately 500. The organization has 900 names on its mailing list, according to Besnainou, who came to San Diego about 2 1/2 years ago to work for Merrill Lynch.
