Kevin Amaral

People and Culture Manager

Kevin began his foray into Human Resources in 2004 while working for the City of Petaluma overseeing the Youth Employment Services program for Petaluma City Schools. In this role he helped teach high school students how to build a resume, conduct job searches, prepare for interviews, and their rights as a minor in the workforce. Due to state-wide budget cuts, Kevin began working for a local community bank in Operations before transitioning to a specialist role within their Human Resources department. After more than 8 years with the bank, he branched out to become the Human Resources Manager for another Sonoma County non-profit before joining our CCNB team.

In addition to his experience, Kevin holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, Management from San Francisco State University, as well as associate degrees in Human Resources Administration and Psychology from Santa Rosa Junior College.
