Fiona Hutton
President, Fiona Hutton & Associates

Fiona runs a widely-respected communications strategy and public affairs firm that focuses on some of California’s most high profile and pressing issues. Well-versed in public policy, legislation and politics, Fiona is consistently recognized as one of the Top 100 Influencers at the State Capitol. A California native, Fiona splits time between her residences in Ojai and Los Angeles. Both properties abut open space owned by conservancies – driving her interest in and support of open space preservation, trails and park access, wildlife corridors and much more. Fiona’s firm is responsible for managing every natural resource bond measure that has been approved by California voters during the past twenty years, providing much needed funding for OVLC and other conservation organizations. When not managing issue advocacy, legislative, regulatory and public awareness campaigns, Fiona is an outdoor enthusiast, hiker and “farmer in training”. And, her real passion is monitoring motion sensor wildlife cameras spread throughout her Ojai property.

Cari Shore 
Senior Vice President and Director of Community Banking, Montecito Bank & Trust

An Ojai native, Cari Shore grew up in Meiners Oaks where she and her sister found refuge on the Ojai Meadows Preserve long before it was preserved. Since then, her daughter and nieces have enjoyed countless walks and adventures in the space she considers so special. Senior Vice President and Director of Community Banking at Montecito Bank & Trust, Cari feels very fortunate to work for a bank that recognizes and encourages community connection. In her current role, she oversees the branch network, call center, mortgage sales, treasury services and MB&T Financial Advisors. Cari began her banking career nearly 25 years ago as a teller. She has enjoyed a number of roles that allow her to do what she loves: building relationships, problem solving, innovating, and continuous learning. Cari is thrilled to return to the OVLC Board after first joining in 2008. Outside of work, you’ll find Cari spending time with family, camping, cycling, hiking, reading, and listening to live music.
