The American Red Cross Los Angeles Region announces the election of Scott J. Olmsted as Chair of the Board of Directors for the Los Angeles Region. The confirmation came during the Los Angeles Region’s 102nd Annual Meeting held on June 21 at USC’s Town and Gown in Los Angeles, with hundreds of volunteers, staff and partners in attendance.

Mr. Olmsted, Senior Vice President, Group Head for the Technology, Media and Entertainment Group Bank of America Merrill Lynch, is responsible for leading a team that advises emerging growth to public companies in the technology, media and entertainment industry across multiple segments of their business including capital raising, advisory and day-to-day operations.

Mr. Olmsted has been on the board since 2012 and previously held the position of Vice Chair with the humanitarian organization. His term as Board Chair begins July 1, as he succeeds Andrea Davis, Director of Global Crisis Management and Business Continuity, The Walt Disney Company.

“I am humbled to be elected Chair for the nation’s second-largest Red Cross Region and thrilled to help lead more than 5,000 volunteers and staff as we carry out the mission of the American Red Cross every day in Los Angeles,” said Scott Olmsted. “I’m looking forward to a collaborative environment, where I can share my knowledge and expertise and also learn from the existing team’s comprehensive understanding of the types of services our Los Angeles community needs.”

Along with those in attendance electing the chair, current Board Members also elected three Vice Chairs:

Mr. Daly also serves as Red Cross LA’s Chairman of the Prepare SoCal committee, and The Asia Society – Southern California. Additionally, he has served in the past on the NH-ISAC Board (cybersecurity liaison for our healthcare sector).

Cheryl Moersen, Principal Ernst & Young.
