Phyllis Takisaki Campbell ('73 Bus. Adm.) has been named president and CEO of The Seattle Foundation, the state's oldest and largest community foundation. She succeeds Anne V. Farrell, who served in that position for 19 years before announcing her retirement last December.

"This is a dream come true for me," Campbell says, "and an unparalleled opportunity to make a positive difference in our region."

In 2002, the foundation distributed nearly $39 million in grants, and has assets approaching $285 million.

Campbell concluded a 28-year banking career as president of U.S. Bank of Washington, 1993-2001. She was appointed to the Washington State University Board of Regents in 1990, served as president in 1995-96, and completed her tenure in May 2003. She also serves on the boards of Safeco, Puget Sound Energy, and Pacific Science Center, and as 2002-2003 chair of the Washington Athletic Club board..
