Barbara B. Kamm has been tapped to replace Ken Burns, who left in May 2009, as president/CEO of the $1 billion credit union.
A longtime financial industry veteran, most recently Kamm operated her own Bay Area-based consulting firm to provide strategic, organizational and financial assistance to young tech companies and financial institutions. Prior to that she served as Silicon Valley Bank chief administrative officer, where she worked with many entrepreneurs, start-up businesses, venture capitalists and industry associations to meet the financial needs of the technology community.
According to Mical Atz Brenzel, board chairman of the San Jose, Calif.-based credit union, Kamm's extensive banking and management experience makes her "an excellent choice to lead Tech CU during these challenging economic times."
"I'm excited to have the opportunity to serve as Tech CU's new President/CEO as we enter a new decade," said Kamm. "With this credit union's distinguished 50-year history of serving the technology community in Silicon Valley, I look forward to continuing to grow our brand and deliver the highest level of service possible to our members."
