The Board of Directors of the Seminary Co-op Bookstore named Jeff Deutsch as the next director of the bookstore beginning July 1.
Deutsch previously worked at the co-op bookstore at Stanford University where he was director of stores since 2012. Before that he ran the Cal Student Store at the University of California, Berkeley.
Deutsch was named director after several meetings with the Co-op’s board of directors, staff and members.
The Co-op’s previous director and one of its founding members, Jack Cella, retired in October. He was the general manager for 43 years.
Deutsch will begin July 1. Co-op members will have the opportunity to meet him at an open house at 5751 S. Woodlawn Ave. from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 27.
