Packard joins KMVT 15 board

KMVT 15 Silicon Valley Community Media recently elected former Los Altos Mayor Ron Packard to its board of directors.

Packard, a practicing attorney for more than 40 years, is president of Packard, Packard & Johnson, P.C., in downtown Los Altos. He also co-founded and is chairman of the board of directors for Marich Confectionery.

Prior to moving to Los Altos 30 years ago, Packard served as mayor of Mountain View. Over the years, he has sat on the boards of several nonprofit organizations, including the Los Altos Village Association and Peninsula Symphony.

He earned a master’s degree in public administration from UC Riverside, a master’s in business administration from UC Berkeley and a juris doctorate from Hastings School of Law.

“I’m looking forward to working with Ron Packard to achieve KMVT 15’s goal of becoming a fully digital facility as well as one of the most accessible public media forums of our time, tailored to our community’s needs,” said Shelley Wolfe, executive director of KMVT 15. “His perspective will be invaluable as we continue to focus on growth, collaboration and fundraising in this era of rapidly evolving communications.”
