Carlos Gallardo of Farmers & Merchants Bank
The President’s Award is selected each year by the Chamber President and honors an individual or business who has made significant contributions or changes to the Chamber.
2019-2020 Chamber President Susan Crowell selected Carlos Gallardo of Farmers and Merchants Bank as this year’s recipient. Carlos supports the Chamber by attending and participating in almost all Chamber events. You will see him at committee meetings, seminars, ribbon cuttings, mentoring events, the fireworks stand, and the Golf Tournament. He is also an Ambassador and a new Chamber Board member. His employer, Farmers and Merchants Bank has sponsored the Destiny Dinner, Women in Business and the Business Expo.
Carlos is a natural leader with the unique ability to look at issues and come up with creative and common sense solutions. In addition to supporting the chamber in all of these ways, our recipient thought outside the box and came to the Chamber with an idea for a new committee which he started up and has chaired for the past two years.
On a personal note, he is married and they have a daughter. He is an award winning DJ, he volunteers to mentor at-risk-teens and he is an active member of the Norwalk/Santa Fe Springs Rotary Club.
Congratulations and well deserved Carlos!
