Casey Eichler was one of Saint John’s University’s blazing stars, a brilliant executive with a radiant personality who helped those around him shine a little brighter.
Eichler put his accounting degree to work in an impressive career that included vice president and CFO positions at companies such as Ultra Clean Technology, Credence Systems Corporation, MarketTools, Inc., MIPS Technologies, Inc. and, most recently, as vice president and chief financial officer at Ambarella, Inc.
Famously generous with his time and his talents, Eichler was a long-time member of the Saint John’s University Private Investment Committee. He also served as a trustee for Saint Mary’s College in Moraga, California, as school board president for Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church and as a member of the Stanford University Rotary Club. He holds a place in Mount Michael Benedictine High School’s alumni hall of fame in his beloved hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.
Eichler retained his shimmering optimism, passion for life and irrepressible humor even as he battled glioblastoma, the brain cancer that took his life in March. His spirit lives on in his wife Kathleen (Murray, CSB ’82), three children and many friends and classmates to whom he spread so much light.
