Amar Bornkamp is a retired former leader and people manager.   Amar worked at Charles Schwab for a total of 22 years, and in her tenure led teams in Corporate Actions, Cash Control, and Access & Entitlements.   She majored in Business Administration and had over 30 years of experience in the financial industry. 

She is passionate about developing others to their full potential and helping them advance in their careers.  During her time at Schwab she co-chaired the Asian Pacific Islander Network at Schwab (APINS), where she coordinated and put together career development events that focused on how to overcome issues and challenges Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders face in the work force.  In putting together these events she worked with other companies and Asian non-profit organizations like Ascend and FWN.   

She also serves on the School Board of St. Bede Catholic School in Hayward and is the chairperson of their Enrollment Committee.  As a member of the St. Bede parish she has been teaching catechism for almost 17 years.  She teaches 3rd and 4th grade parishioners who are preparing to do their First Reconciliation and receive their First Communion.  As a catechist, she’s not only giving back to the church and community, but also living out her childhood dream of being a teacher.  Since her retirement, Amar has been doing volunteer work for several non-profit organizations that work to help and benefit children.
