Chair — Cameron Haste
Cameron has been a member of Hope’s board since 2010, and is the executive vice president and chief operations officer (COO) for Bay Federal Credit Union, the largest locally owned financial institution in Santa Cruz County. He is co-founder of Emanate Life Sciences, a Bay Area firm dedicated to supporting biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device companies conducting clinical trials.
Cameron began his relationship with Hope Services about 10 years ago when he hired one of Hope’s clients. The client was a wonderful addition to the credit union family and remains a beloved member of his team. Experiencing the positive impact to Bay Federal and observing Hope’s engagement in the community, he wanted to become more involved.
Cameron is active in the community and supports a number of causes important to him. He serves on the Measure O Bond Oversight Committee and is a Rotarian. He studied at California State University, Dominguez Hills, and earned a bachelor’s degree in International Business. Cameron enjoys extreme travel experiences and recently returned from a trip to the Arctic.
