The HCCS Board of Directors welcomed two new members in June, Nate Look and Lili Yeo and held officer elections. Both Nate and Lili are HCCS parents and have been active volunteers prior to joining the Board.

Nate Look is a certified public accountant with over 10 years experience in different facets of accounting and financial analysis. He grew up in Seattle and graduated from University of Portland with Bachelor’s and Masters degrees in Business Administration. Nate and his wife Jennifer have 3 children, 2 of which attend HCCS. They both love the school immensely. He enjoys tennis, and Hawaiian vacations. Nate was elected to Board Treasurer.

Lili Yeo has 20 years experience in consumer marketing with Fortune 200 companies and the last six years with Goumikids – a startup that she co-founded. Prior to Goumikids, she headed the China practice and led cross-functional teams to create market-relevant, profitable consumer experience solutions for emerging global brand clients. Lili holds an MBA from the Institute of Management Development (IMD), a BA in International Marketing from the University of Washington and a Certificate from Beijing University. She was also a guest lecturer at the Tianjin University of Finance and Economics on topics of International Marketing, International Trade and Cross–Cultural Communication. Lili speaks five languages, including Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, and Tagalog. Lili and her husband, Alan, have two children at HCCS.

Victor DePablos was elected to Board Chair. Victor has worked in Telecommunication for nearly 30 years both at Ericsson Telecom, and for the past 20 years at AT&T. He is currently the Operations Manager for the Production Support Lab, but has worked in Commissioning, Engineering, and Operations. He has a bachelor’s degree in Electronics Engineering and an MBA as well as being a Six Sigma Green Belt. He recently started a second Master’s degree in Data/Computer Science. Victor and his wife Monica have two children at HCCS and have been active volunteers over the past 4 years. He has served on the Board for the past two years.

The Board also bid farewell to Sanjay Reddy, who stepped down after serving a total of three years and as Board Chair for the past two years. Sanjay has been instrumental in transitioning the Board to a governing and strategic role. Sanjay has also been very active in establishing volunteer expectations and commitments, including the implementation of HelpCounter.  “Sanjay’s great leadership and hard work for the school have been fundamental to our success,” said Victor. “He will be missed.” Sanjay and his wife Latha have two children at HCCS and have been active volunteers over the past 4 years.

The Board accepts applications throughout the year and elects new members in June and December of each year. The Board has a particular need for new members with an Education, Legal, or Human Resources background. Candidates are expected to have demonstrated their commitment to the school through meaningful volunteering. Please email the Board Secretary for more information.

Thank you!
