Kym Johnson Luqman


Executive Director

Kym joined BANANAS in December 2016 as the new Executive Director. Bringing a decade of expertise as a leader in the nonprofit field as well as 20 years of experience in executive sales, she embodies an entrepreneurial spirit that fits with the Bunch perfectly. She previously served as Executive Director of Harambee Community Services, an organization supporting adults with developmental disabilities, and Executive Director of Rebuilding Together Oakland, a group dedicated to rejuvenating neighborhoods and providing housing to low-income families.

Kym has an MBA from the University of San Francisco and a Certificate in Nonprofit Management from California State University – East Bay. As native New Yorker, she misses the fall colors of autumn and the diversity of the seasons, but loves the cultural tapestry of Oakland and the greater Bay Area. A former soccer mom with a daughter who just graduated from college, she now enjoys having her weekends to do whatever she wants!
