Denise Herrick
Vice President of Organizational Development and Talent Management
Bank of the West


Denise Herrick brings more than 20 years of combined experience in leadership development, executive coaching, organizational development and progressive human resources management. Having worked in public and privately held companies, many of the leadership roles she held were in the fast-paced high tech industry where she established a track record of delivering business results. Herrick joined Bank of the West in 2013 to design and run the organization’s leadership development programs, linking leadership effectiveness with team member engagement. Between sessions, she does public speaking and one-on-one coaching with program participants, tapping into natural strengths that align with organizational needs.

Herrick has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in human resource management from Michigan State University. With this foundation, she went onto leadership roles within HR AT&T, LSI Logic and Panasas Inc. In 2009, she returned to her true passion and earned her coaching certification, expanding her toolbox for working more formally as a coach. Herrick is avid reader and commits time to continuous learning and practical application. Outside of work, she enjoys time and travel with her husband and two children.
