The Gesher Galicia Board of Directors welcomes Charlie Katz as our new
Treasurer. After 15 years of dedicated service, Ann Harris has stepped
down. We are grateful for her service as former treasurer and wish her
the very best in future endeavors.
Charlie is an information technology consultant with decades of
experience delivering data management solutions for a global financial
institution. Most recently, he was a Senior Vice President of
Enterprise Operations & Technology leading big data engineering and
advanced analytics initiatives. Charlie holds a BA degree in Liberal
Arts from The New School in New York City.
Charlie has been researching his family history for over 20 years, a
journey spanning roots in Galicia, immigration to New York’s Lower
East Side, and adaptation to life in America in the early 20th
century. His research reconnected family in the US and UK that had
lost contact 60 years earlier.
Please join us in welcoming Charlie to the Board and wishing him
success in his new role.
Dr. Steven Turner
