Krystle Ang Palmer, City Treasurer

Krystle Ang Palmer was elected City Treasurer in November 2020, receiving the highest number of votes cast for a City candidate in Burbank’s history. Previously, Krystle was appointed City Treasurer by the City Council in 2019.

As City Treasurer, Krystle’s top priority is safekeeping our public funds. She makes sure that Burbank has adequate cash on a day-to-day basis to pay for City services. Under Krystle’s watch, the City’s $500M investment portfolio has yielded returns that continue to outperform the market benchmark.

In 2021, Krystle led the integration of Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) principles in Burbank’s Investment Policy, affirming the City’s commitment to sustainability, health, and fair practices, while upholding that safety, liquidity, and yield remain the primary investment objectives.

In 2022, the City Treasurer’s office, in partnership with a local credit union, launched the first ever Burbank universal children’s savings program, which provides $50 for all new Burbank babies, promoting long-term savings, discipline, and financial literacy.

Prior to joining the City, Krystle built her career in finance and strategy in the private sector. With over 15 years of experience, she has worked as an investment analyst for a fund of hedge funds in New York City. She has also worked as a consultant for a top management consulting firm. Additionally, she has served as a finance and corporate strategist for a technology startup.

Krystle is an active member of the Government Investment Officers Association (GIOA), the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA), the California Municipal Treasurers Association (CMTA), and the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers (CSMFO). Krystle served the Burbank community as part of the Civic Pride Committee from 2014 to 2016. She is also a member of the Burbank moms club. 

Krystle holds an M.S. in Financial Engineering from Columbia University. She also received a B.S. in Management Engineering and a B.A. in Economics (Honors) from Ateneo de Manila University. Krystle appreciates diverse cuisines and restaurants, and has completed a Certificate in Food and Beverage Operations from New York University. She also enjoys playing basketball and participates in the Burbank Parks and Recreation Adult Women’s League.

Krystle lives in Burbank with her husband, Sean, their twin boys, Elliot and Grant, and daughter, Madeline.
