Interface Children and Family Services has appointed four new members to the agency’s board of directors: Primo Custodio, Kevin Rex, Mira Shishim and Felix Wang.

Their varied professional backgrounds and experience will be essential as Interface begins work on its next strategic plan and prepares for its 50th anniversary celebration in 2023, the agency said.

Custodio brings 44 years of human resources experience to the board. Prior to his retirement, he served as Vice President of Human Resources for NBCUniversal for 15 years.

In this role, Custodio oversaw the West Coast Human Resources function for Technical Operations and Services comprising Universal Studio Operations and West Coast Technical Operations.

Rex provides financial expertise to the board, as a partner of Morton Wealth in Calabasas. For six years, he has worked as a wealth advisor.

As a physician assistant, Shishim received her master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona.

She practices at Anacapa Surgical Associates in Ventura as a medical assistant specializing in general surgery and family medicine. She brings a perspective as a healthcare provider with knowledge of how Interface’s programs interact with various healthcare partners.

After earning a degree in bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania, Wang moved to Los Angeles to begin his career at Tyco International, where he worked for six years before retiring from electronics manufacturing. He began a new career in the hospitality industry with Hyatt International and manages the family business, which includes the Best Western Plus Thousand Oaks Inn.

Wang’s concern for human trafficking awareness within the hospitality industry will help Interface connect with other hospitality leaders in Ventura County and the region to provide training and awareness.
