“Kumar Malavalli is a savvy and passionate leader who can rally support for a common cause—and have fun doing it at the same time. A new trustee of the Asian Art Museum, Kumar has immediately helped the museum strengthen its bonds with the South Asian community from the Bay Area to Bangalore, India and beyond. He’s a big-hearted philanthropist and proud champion of culture who understands the real value of what the Museum offers the greater Bay Area, and can successfully inspire others to feel the same.”
