CBC’s unique combination of robust financial condition, advanced technology, and a holistic approach to personal service is what is making us the bank of choice for businesses and professionals in Southern California.
Ash Patel, President & CEO
2018 was a milestone year for Commercial Bank of California.
Our achievements were many. From a financial perspective, this was CBC’s strongest year ever. The year’s net income was the highest in our history, and we chalked up solid growth in total assets, net loans, and total deposits. At the same time, our capital position remained in the strongest category established by banking regulators, and despite our growth, our loan portfolio maintained the high credit qualify that has long been our hallmark.
Our 2018 accomplishments extend beyond mere financial performance, however. We bolstered our strong management team with four new executives: Market Presidents Claudia Bodan and Mike Helmuth (for our Los Angeles and Orange County markets, respectively), Growth and Strategy EVP Shahzad Khan in our Payments Division, and EVP/Chief Risk Officer Neel Pinge. We added three new CBC locations in 2018: new regional offices in Anaheim and downtown Los Angeles, and our Payments Solutions facility in North Hollywood. Lastly, we added a fintech component to the CBC corporate family. VeriCheck is a provider of ACH services based in Atlanta, which processes over 900,000 transactions each month for its payments clients.
What these achievements have in common is that they further strengthen our organizational foundation as the basis of our future success. Each brings us closer to our goal of building a unique institution, a bank that does not yet exist, with financial products stretching from Payments Solutions to Mobile Banking, and the financial strength and responsive service needed to make a meaningful contribution to the success of our clients. CBC’s unique combination of robust financial condition, advanced technology, and a holistic approach to personal service is what is making us the bank of choice for businesses and professionals in Southern California.
2018 was a year of increasing volatility in the economic environment, and with that volatility come both challenges and opportunities. Fortunately, our financial strength and flexibility enables us to act decisively to address those challenges and capitalize on the opportunities. We believe that our current performance and future trends justify our confidence in the future of Commercial Bank of California.
