Long on Compassion and Kindness
A recent recipient of the North Bay Business Journal’s Forty under 40 award, Bank of Marin Branch Manager David Short started as a teller at Bank of Marin in Petaluma. Today, he manages the Bank’s Grant Avenue location in Novato, a leadership role he attributes to his passion for building relationships with customers, teammates and the community.
When you talk to David, you hear his enthusiasm for helping customers achieve their goals, and for supporting his staff to grow and do their best work. He offers this perspective: “I work with a terrific team and when we solve a problem for a customer or make their day a little easier, I find that very satisfying.”
By exemplifying Bank of Marin’s core value of commitment to the community, David has found his philanthropic work to be equally rewarding. He is Past President of the Board of Directors for Petaluma People Services Center and served on both their Executive and Finance committees.
As past President of the Novato Human Needs Center, David played an integral and expansive role in the recent merger of that organization with the Novato Youth Center. According to David, the newly created North Marin Community Services “is a vital organization that will offer more programs and services to the people who need the most support in our community.”
David’s compassion for people in need runs long and deep: “I’ve always enjoyed giving back because I get far more joy from giving than receiving.” And give he does, as his desire to help others is never in short supply.
