Business Council Names Jeffrey Ball as CEO

The Orange County Business Council today named Jeffrey Ball as its new chief executive and president, effective Jan. 1, to replace Lucy Dunn, who is retiring.

Ball currently serves as CEO and president at Whittier-based Friendly Hills Bank, which he co-founded and led through an initial public offering. Friendly Hills Bancorp (OTC: FHLB) has a $7.3 million market cap.

“It is an honor and a privilege to have this opportunity to lead OCBC and follow in the footsteps of the impactful contributions made by Lucy Dunn,” said Ball, a long-time resident of Huntington Beach.

A five-member OCBC Search Committee, headed up by two past board chairs, recommended Ball following extensive interviews with a diverse cross section of candidates during the three-month search. Irvine-based McDermott + Bull helped facilitate the executive search.
