Hello Friends,

Last month, after an incredible 16 years as OCBC’s President and CEO, I publicly announced my intention to retire on December 31, 2021. My objective from day one was to represent the interests of so many who contribute so much to the success and high quality of life in Orange County. It has been an honor to help shape and champion the policies and initiatives that have been instrumental in making this county one of the great places to do business.

I credit a large part of what makes Orange County special to you, our members and investors. I sincerely appreciate your support and participation in OCBC. You are the reason OCBC has a solid record of achievement and has become the leading voice of business regionally, nationally and globally. Together we have helped shape Orange County into one of the most desirable places in the world to live, work, raise families and enjoy an excellent quality of life.

Under the leadership of OCBC’s immediate past Board Chair, Joe Hensley, Market President of U.S. Bank, and former Board Chair, Steve Churm, Executive Vice President, Public Affairs for FivePoint Holdings, LLC, OCBC's Search Committee selected McDermott + Bull as the executive search firm that will help identify and select OCBC's next President and CEO.

For those interested in learning more about or applying for this prestigious CEO leadership position, please contact Chris Bull at bull@mbexec.com.

Again, I am truly grateful for your partnership. I am privileged and honored to be part of Orange County’s innovative community, working alongside world-class leaders like you.

Lucy Dunn
President and CEO
