Santa Barbara Bank & Trust announced Tuesday that Nathan Duda, CPA, has joined the bank as a corporate controller.

He will be responsible for management of the bank’s accounting department.

Before joining Santa Barbara Bank & Trust, Duda was the corporate controller for OneWest Bank in Pasadena, where he oversaw accounting functions and managed a staff of more than 60 personnel.

Before that, he was the chief financial officer and controller for Affinity Bank in Ventura and spent six years with KPMG LLP in Los Angeles.

“We are very happy to welcome Nathan on our team, and I am confident that his leadership and technical abilities will contribute to our success going forward,” said Mark Olson, chief financial officer. “His proven track record of managing corporate finances as well as overseeing the integration of new servicing systems makes him ideally suited to leading our accounting and finance department. We look forward to benefiting from his experience.”

Duda has relocated back to Carpinteria from Los Angeles with his wife and four children and is looking forward to becoming more involved in local community activities. He is a certified public accountant and received a bachelor’s degree in business economics from UCSB.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
