Two new directors, Martha L. Daetwyler and Barbara B. Kamm, strengthen bank managment with governance and commercial lending expertise
San Francisco — New Resource Bank has appointed Martha L. Daetwyler and Barbara B. Kamm to its board of directors, adding to the bank’s management strength as it approaches its third anniversary.
“Martha has extensive experience with board governance issues, as well as the special talent of being able to pay close attention to details while keeping in mind the deeper values of an organization,” said Board Chair Mark Finser. “Barbara’s management experience with both large and small banks, as well as her skills in commercial lending, will be very valuable in helping us serve the sustainable business community.”
Daetwyler is lead trustee on the Board of Trustees for RSF Social Finance, a nonprofit organization that seeks to bring about positive, real-world change by making capital available to innovative, sustainable projects. She is also senior Counsel with the San Francisco law firm of Leland, Parachini, Steinberg, Matzger & Melnick, LLP.
“New Resource Bank is ideally positioned to fill the banking needs of businesses and individuals concerned with sustainability in terms of people, planet, and profit,” said Daetwyler. “I’m excited about the opportunity to work with the talented staff and board in promoting these goals.”
Kamm is principal of Kamm Consulting, which advises financial institutions and early-stage companies on financial and organizational strategy. She has 23 years of banking experience, including serving as chief administrative officer and executive vice president of Silicon Valley Bank, a $10 billion commercial bank that serves early-stage technology and life science companies nationwide.
“After years in bank management, I’m looking forward to serving on a bank board, and I am pleased to be able to help New Resource execute its unique mission,” Kamm said.
The board also accepted the resignation of founding director Rick Holmstrom, with gratitude for his invaluable service in helping to build New Resource. “I continue to be fully supportive of the bank, its mission, and its future, but have to step aside due to time constraints,” said Holmstrom. “I continue to be very excited about New Resource’s prospects.”
