CrossCheck

Petaluma, Calif. (December 20, 2016) — In an era when few employees spend the better part of their careers working for one organization, two CrossCheck executives were recognized this month for 25 years of service with the privately held check-processing company: President and CEO J. David Siembieda and Senior Vice President Mike Harris. Their stories of rising through the ranks, broadening their responsibilities and guiding the firm into the 21st century have been an inspiration to the lives they have touched over the years.

Siembieda (above right) and Harris (above left) are alumni of Sonoma State University and active in trade organizations as well as the local community.

President and CEO J. David (Dave) Siembieda

Siembieda is responsible for the day-to-day flow of CrossCheck and understanding the function of each department while being tasked with controlling the budget; monitoring the national market, competition and tech trends; and developing new concepts and industry affiliations. Departments reporting directly to him include Customer Service, Legal, Partner Relations, Petaluma Telesales, Field Sales and Product Development. He spent nine years in the Sales and Consumer Relations departments before being promoted to head the firm in October 2000.

“Dave Siembieda’s individual success within the company as well as his ability to develop employees and strategic partnerships have been invaluable resources,” said CrossCheck Executive Vice President and COO Chris Schumacher. “His strong leadership qualities and vision make him the ideal person to lead our company into the next decade.”

Siembieda has served on the Electronic Transaction Association board of directors, The Green Sheet (a financial services publication) advisor board, and the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts (aka Luther Burbank Center) board of directors. In 2010, he was named one of the “Most Influential Leaders in the North Bay” by the North Bay Business Journal for the counties of Sonoma, Marin and Napa. He is an American Legion Baseball coach and has a bachelor of arts in business administration.

Senior Vice President Mike Harris

CrossCheckHarris manages the daily operations and budgets of four CrossCheck departments: Merchant Analysis and Control (MAC), Claims, Underwriting and Risk Management, and Merchant Acquisition. He held management positions in the Sales and Consumer Relations departments before assuming his current role in December 2001. He earned a bachelor of arts in accounting and economics.

“Mike Harris is well-known for his expertise in analyzing financial data and risk management as well as his long-range budgetary planning,” said Siembieda. “He is a great asset to our organization and the Sonoma County community.”

Harris was a member of the Petaluma City Council for three terms (one year as vice mayor) and is the incoming president of the Petaluma Chamber of Commerce. He has been the chairman of the Technology Advisory Committee for Petaluma (2008 – 2009), Youth Commission for the City of Petaluma (2013) and Transit Advisory Committee (2009 – 2010). He was also a member of the Petaluma Planning Commission and Sonoma County Airport Commission.

His active community service includes Friends of the Santa Rosa Junior College Trust-Petaluma Campus (2015 – present; chairman-elect), Miwok District of the Boy Scouts of American board of directors (2015 – present), and Petaluma Valley Hospital Foundation board of directors (2016 – present; current vice president).

CrossCheck Supports Sonoma County's Less Fortunate During Holidays

For Immediate Release: 
January 8, 2016

Petaluma, Calif. – CrossCheck, Inc., a leading provider of check processing services, concluded 2015 with a charitable bang by sponsoring a Salvation Army Angel Tree and hosting a food drive for the Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB). Employees collected 75 presents for local children in need. Food drive efforts filled three barrels — one more barrel than was originally provided — with food for needy families this holiday season.CrossCheck's Food Drive for the Redwood Empire Food Bank

As a corporate sponsor of a Salvation Army Angel Tree, CrossCheck employees were able to select a tag from its decorated Christmas tree to fulfill at least one of the suggested gift requests. Last year, the Salvation Army of Petaluma reported that over 500 children had received presents accumulated from sponsors like CrossCheck.  

The Christmas Center at the Salvation Army of Petaluma allows low income families with children ages 0-17 to sign up to receive gifts, many of whom don’t have a Christmas tree much less any presents to unwrap.   

“We help care for the people of Sonoma County as if they are part of our family, because in truth, they are.” said CrossCheck CEO, J. David Siembieda. He goes on to state, “Simply put, we can help, so we do.”

The REFB regularly feeds 82,000 hungry adults and children in Sonoma County each month, and also provides food and hunger relief to others in Lake, Mendocino, Humboldt and Del Norte counties. The REFB is a member of Feeding America and a member of the California Association of Food Banks.

REFB’s most recent 2015 statistics revealed that by spring, 400 community food drives had been hosted by companies like CrossCheck as well as schools, online sources, and food and drug stores. Those efforts were able to generate 570,000 meals thus far.
