IRVINE and ANAHEIM, CALIF. (February 22, 2018) –
Commercial Bank of California, a BauerFinancial Five-Star Superior Bank, has opened a new regional office at 1900 South State College Boulevard in Anaheim, California. This office solidifies Commercial Bank of California’s position as a market leader in Southern California.
“Our connection with the Anaheim community is very strong and it is a very special place for Commercial Bank of California,” said Ash Patel, president and CEO of Commercial Bank of Califoria. “Not only do we have relationships here with local residents and businesses that date back more than a decade, but Anaheim's growth trajectory as a business center uniquely aligns with our mission to help entrepreneurs succeed.”
The new office represents a homecoming for many members of Commercial Bank of California’s leadership team that have long histories in the city and with its business community. Much of the leadership was formerly part of the team at Premier Commercial Bank under the leadership of Ash Patel. Now back together at Commercial Bank of California, the Anaheim leadership team includes:
- Molly Millican is the senior vice president and regional manager at Commercial Bank of California. She serves as an Ambassador for the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce and was formerly a board member of the Orange Chamber of Commerce where she was “Ambassador of the Year” three times. She served at Premier Commercial Bank for 10 years before joining Commercial Bank of California in 2013.
- Jason DiLuigi is a senior vice president and formerly served the Anaheim community at Premier Commercial Bank from 2005 to 2014 before joining Commercial Bank of California.
- Brent Walters is a senior vice president that specializes in corporate lending and has spent more than 15 years serving the businesses in Anaheim with Premier Commercial Bank, and joined Commercial Bank of California in the fall of 2017.
- Carlo de Lucia is a senior vice president that specializes in SBA lending and was part of the Premier Commercial Bank team in Anaheim beginning in 2005. He also joined Commercial Bank of California last year.
“It is a great feeling to be back in Anaheim. Not only did I grow up here, but I have spent much of my career serving this community,” said Millican. “The majority of our Anaheim team has been serving this community’s banking needs for at least a decade. Our reunion here will bring more opportunities to the businesses of Anaheim as they continue to compete and grow.”
The City of Anaheim is Orange County’s largest city and has long been associated with travel and tourism, however, the city’s diverse economy includes a thriving manufacturing sector and a growing professional services segment. The city also shares the entrepreneurial spirit of Orange County’s startup culture, a market which Commercial Bank of California not only understands because of its own entrepreneurial spirit, but is dedicated to serving as the business community grows.
