Vice President of Innovation and Development Ken Kondo

Santa Rosa, Calif. - Redwood Credit Union (RCU) has promoted Ken Kondo to vice president of innovation and development. In his new role, Kondo will lead the data development and application development teams, as well as the business systems analyst teams to advance strategic and innovative initiatives for the institution.

Kondo joined RCU in 2016 with 18 years of credit union experience, having worked in implementations, programming, and as a senior software engineer, chief technology officer, and business intelligence solutions specialist.

“Ken has helped us digitally transform the organization,” said Aaron Collier, senior vice president of information technology. “With COVID-19, more people are utilizing our technology to bank from the safety of their homes and Ken has been instrumental in helping us complete projects rapidly to deliver the positive experience our members expect.”

Kondo has a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Bachelor of Science degree from Miami University, and a business analytics certificate from the University of California San Diego. He recently served on the advisory board for Symitar’s Advanced Reporting for Credit Unions (ARCU) and is a member of the technology council for the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).
