CU System
LA Chamber Board Member First To Represent CUs
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (2/14/13)--Kinecta FCU Board Chairman Darryl F. Johnson has been elected to the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce Board, serving as its first credit union representative.

Governed by a 140-member Board of Directors, the L.A. Area Chamber works to shape the region through strategic initiatives and advocacy on key issues facing Southern California.

"Given his extensive experience in L.A. area business, including his current board chair position at Kinecta FCU, coupled with his strong commitment to serve the community, he is an ideal addition," said L.A. Area Chamber President/CEO Gary Toebben.

Kinecta is a $3.17 billion asset credit union based in Manhattan Beach.

Johnson said he "can contribute to enhancing the region economically and culturally.  My ties are strong to Los Angeles and its businesses, schools and communities. Having the opportunity to give back in this way is an honor."

He is a retired aerospace executive and a retired colonel in the Army Reserves. Before retiring, he held leadership positions at Raytheon Systems Co. (formerly Hughes Aircraft Co.), including director of group administration and executive in charge of enterprise services.

He is active in a number of community organizations, including the University of California at Los Angeles, where he was former chair of the Chancellor's Cabinet, former chair of the UCLA Fund, board member of the UCLA Foundation, member of the UCLA Board of Governors, and more. He also served as president of the Hughes Black Professional Forum, vice president of the board of directors for the Girl Scouts of America, Long Beach, and board member of the African-American Unity Center of the Brotherhood Crusade of Los Angeles.
