We are thrilled to have Karl Werwath as a member of our Board of Directors!

Karl currently serves as Chief Operating Officer for Bank of the West – BNP Paribas, and is a member of the bank’s Executive Management Committee. Previously, he held several senior positions at Capital One Financial Corporation and other roles at Motorola, Inc.

He shares, “I came to Raphael House because of the tremendous role that they play in our community, providing a critical and very unique service in supporting families.”

For the majority of his professional career, Karl has served on the boards of nonprofits that care for children and families in need. “I truly believe that the true measure of societal compassion lies in how we help those that are most vulnerable,” he said.

Karl has enjoyed working with our team, helping to navigate Raphael House through challenging times like the COVID-19 pandemic.

In his free time Karl enjoys road cycling throughout beautiful Marin County. His favorite ride is to Point Reyes Station on the weekends, after which he grabs a piece of vegan coffee cake at Bovine Bakery.

When asked what excites him about our mission, Karl said, “It is all about our commitment to serving the members of our community and partnering with other organizations to meet the unique needs of all family members as they strive for independence.”

We are so fortunate to have Karl on our Board.
