Bindu has combined a career in business with a commitment to her community — while excelling at both.

After nearly 20 years with Tri Counties Bank, she is now a senior vice president and regional manager. She leads the bank’s Sacramento Valley Retail Region, serving not just as a manager but also a coach, mentor and role model for more than 100 employees at 14 branches.

In the community, Bindu has served on non-profit boards form Women’s Empowerment, the Boys and Girls Club, CCHAT Learning Center and University Enterprises Inc. at Sacramento State.

She was named one of the Sacramento Business Journal’s “40 under 40” and Sacramento Magazine’s “Top 100.”
