For over 150 years, the SF SPCA has been caring for animals and nurturing the city’s deep human-animal bond. So when Dr. Jennifer Scarlett took over as president, she knew that her responsibilities would go beyond helping animals in need to ensuring that this unique bond would remain strong. The way she sees it, animals bring out the best in their human companions. In First Republic, Jennifer knows she has a banking and brokerage partner that’s as responsive to her organization’s needs as the SF SPCA is to the needs of the animals it cares for. This shared commitment to the nonprofit’s long-term well-being has forged a client-bank bond of its own.
