Union Bank announced Thursday that former Sammamish councilwoman and mayor Kathleen Huckabay has joined its private bank team as a wealth strategist.
Huckabay, who worked on the council from 1999 to 2009, is now responsible for the growth of Union Bank’s wealth planning throughout the greater Seattle area.
“Kathleen has extensive experience in wealth planning, which will enable us to build lasting relationships by creating and implementing objective and customized strategies to help our clients achieve their goals and dreams,” said Chris Merrywell, regional managing director. “With Kathleen’s experience and client focus, we are confident that we will continue to expand our business while serving new and existing clients in the Seattle area.”
Huckabay has 20 years of wealth planning experience. She joins Union Bank after serving as a financial planner for US Bank Private Reserve. Prior to that, she was a senior wealth advisor at Berntson Porter PLCC and Laird Norton Trust Co.
Huckabay, who still resides in Sammamish, serves on the boards of the East King County Estate Planning Council, Habitat for Humanity of East King County Advisory Board, Eastside Baby Corner, and Sammamish YMCA; and is a member of the Sammamish Kiwanis Club.
