Baker Boyer Announces Two New Board Members
With the retirement of David Campbell, two new Directors, Russ Colombo and Martha Huber, have joined the Board of Directors of Baker Boyer Bancorp.
David Campbell had served on the Board of Directors at Baker Boyer since 1981. “Words cannot express how much we appreciate David and his 40 years of service and support through a time of unprecedented growth for Baker Boyer. We will greatly miss his insight and his historical knowledge,” remarked Megan Clubb, Chair, Baker Boyer Board of Directors.
Russ Colombo is currently serving as a Senior Vice President and Senior Business Advisor at Baker Boyer. He will be retiring from regular employment at the bank in July. As a native to Walla Walla and a graduate of Northwest Intermediate Banking School, his unique vision and experience are a huge benefit in gauging the success and viability of business ventures-regardless of the dimension or complexity. He is an expert in tailoring lending solutions to each individual situation and partnering with his clients and other areas of Baker Boyer to create a winning team.
Martha Huber has a deep background in business leadership and governance. She served on the board of J. M. Huber Corporation (Huber), a $2 billion industrial company entering its sixth generation of family ownership, for twenty years during a period of significant transition for the company, its board, and the Huber family. She has chaired Huber Corporation’s Audit and Finance Committee and presently co-chairs the Nominating and Evaluation Committee. Huber received her AB from Barnard College in 1978 and an MBA from Columbia Business School in 1982.
“We are pleased to add the unique talents of both Russ and Martha to our board. With 43 years of employment at Baker Boyer, Russ will complement the Board with not only business lending expertise, but intimate internal Baker Boyer knowledge. And Martha comes to us from a family-owned corporation that is very similar to Baker Boyer, but on a greater scale. We look forward to her unique outlook and contribution,” commented Clubb.
