The Mountain View Chamber of Commerce has selected former tech executive Peter Katz as its new CEO. Katz replaces Bruce Humphrey, who announced his departure in September.
A fourth-generation Bay Area native, Katz comes with more than 30 years of experience spread between private business and nonprofits. Most recently, he worked as a consultant on strategy and social equity for the California Community Colleges. Prior to that, he was the first executive director of Genesys Works, a nonprofit that helps low-income high school seniors get into college. Katz has also held managerial positions at Xerox and Apple, along with a variety of other startups.
His education includes a history degree from the University of California at Berkeley and an MBA from Golden Gate University.
