Atherton resident Sam Bronfman, chairman of the board of trustees at Phillips Brooks School in Menlo Park, was recently appointed to the board of the Northern California Cancer Center in Union City.

The cancer center is a community-based cancer research and education facility, a spokesperson said.

Mr. Bronfman is involved in a wide variety of civic and philanthropic activities. He serves on the boards of Menlo School, the Youth Tennis Association, and the Jewish Museum in San Francisco.

The 1975 graduate of Williams College joined the family business, Joseph E. Seagram & Sons, in 1979, after working at Sports Illustrated in New York City. In 1984, Mr. Bronfman was named president of Seagram Classics Wine Co., and in 1996, after Seagram's wine operations were consolidated, became president of Seagram Chateau & Estates Wine Co.

Currently, Mr. Bronfman is chairman of global wines for Diageo p.l.c., which acquired Seagram's wine business from Vivendi Corp. in 2000, which had acquired it from Seagram in 1997.
