Holy Names University is pleased to announce the appointment of Steven Borg ’86, MA, as the chairperson of the board of trustees. He succeeds outgoing chair Barbara Hood ’70 who has relocated to Morro Bay, CA, but will continue as a member of the board.
Steve has served on HNU’s board since 2008, and most recently served as vice chair, along with California Supreme Court Justice Carol Corrigan ‘70. He is a senior vice president and corporate marketing director with California Bank & Trust, a division of Zions, and has over 30 years of financial service industry experience, with a focus on marketing communications, strategy, product/channel management, and customer experience. Steve attributes his creative and strategic thinking, business leadership, and active collaborative and communicative approach to his experiences as a student at Holy Names University.
A key tenet of Steve’s core values is that we stand on the shoulders of others, and benefit from the work of those who have come before us. This is a calling to share talents and time. “It was at HNU where I was introduced to the philosophy and values of the servant-leader. It was an invitation to share one’s gifts in order to enrich the lives of others, and build better organizations that ultimately create more just and caring communities and world.”
Steve has served on and led various board committees including advancement, marketing and enrollment, mission integration, and finance. In addition to the HNU board of trustees, Steve is on the board of Oakland School for the Arts and is finance committee chair for Corpus Christi Church in Piedmont.
The University gratefully acknowledges Barbara Hood’s leadership and passionate dedication for over three years as board chairperson. Barbara has served on HNU’s board for more than a decade and is a caring philanthropic partner to her alma mater. We thank her wholeheartedly for her generous spirit.
