Cheryl L. Knight has been appointed president and CEO of Santa Clara Valley Bank, the bank reported Tuesday.

Previously, she served as the Santa Paula-based bank’s executive vice president, chief operating officer and chief credit officer. Knight fills the position vacated by Michael Hause, who resigned in July 2011.

“I am honored to be given this opportunity and excited about the future of Santa Clara Valley Bank,” Knight said.

A veteran in the banking industry, Knight has also served for eight years as a director for California Reinvestment Corp., a non-profit dedicated to financing low- to moderate-income housing in the area.

The chairman of the board, Ralph De Leon, said the bank is delighted that Knight accepted the appointment and is looking forward to a successful future under her very able leadership.

Santa Clara Valley Bank has many new initiatives set for 2012, Knight said.

“Having built a strong infrastructure over the past year, we are positioned to grow the bank as the economy continues to improve,” Knight said.

“The bank will continue to invest in our communities to deliver the best service and products with responsive, flexible solutions,” she said.
