The California Bankers Association didn’t have to look far to find its next CEO.
The association said in a press release that Kevin Gould had also become its president. Gould, who joined the CBA in 2002, was director of state government relations.
“As an experienced association executive who has been with the CBA more than 19 years, Kevin is uniquely qualified to lead the association,” Stan Ivie, the association’s chairman and chief risk officer at PacWest Bancorp, said in the release.
“CBA is a member-driven organization, and Kevin understands the importance of member engagement as we navigate the legislative and economic environments,” Ivie added.
The association had been looking for a new leader since Stephen Andrews announced plans to step down in October.
