We are thrilled to announce the Chamber’s new Chair of the Board, Rick Bregman, San Diego Market President for Bank of America. A native of San Diego, Rick brings a wealth of experience and passion for the San Diego community to the Chamber.
As Market President, he is responsible for coordinating all lines of business for Bank of America across San Diego, as well as delivering the bank’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) efforts that include philanthropic giving of over $1 million and more than 18,000 hours of employee volunteerism in the region. Rick also oversees Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s Global Healthcare Banking practice across North America, which he manages out of San Diego. Across the country, his teams work with clients in all sectors of the healthcare industry. This includes Research Institutions, Life Sciences, Biotech, Medical Device, Technology and Pharmaceutical companies, Healthcare Insurance companies and some of the most comprehensive Hospital and Health Systems.
Raising his family in Point Loma, his own hometown, Rick’s ties to the community run deep. He currently serves on the board of directors of BIOCOM and the National Conflict Resolution Center. He was also a member of the San Diego Chairman’s Competitiveness Council, an organization focused on maximizing the competitiveness of San Diego as an economic region. He has previously served on the boards of CONNECT, the Zoological Society of San Diego (Foundation), the YMCA of San Diego County and the United Way of San Diego.
