Regents Bank Welcomes Hanaa Zahran as Senior Vice President/Senior Relationship Manager
Do you prefer to converse with your banker in Spanish? How about French? Arabic? Russian? We’re very pleased to welcome the multi-lingual and remarkably accomplished banker Hanaa Zahran to our Regents Bank team. Hanaa joins us as a senior vice president and senior relationship manager in our La Jolla office. While she is prepared to speak with you in five different languages, working capital cash flow lingo is by far her favorite!
Hanaa looks forward to promoting and practicing the Regents Bank philosophy of advisory relationship banking within the San Diegan business community. She has worked extensively with clients in the technology and government sectors, but says that she enjoys being a generalist. “The opportunity to add value to many types of businesses and see the impact of the advice I share is tremendously exciting,” she said. “As bankers, we help our clients from the outside looking in, but if you really take the time and care, you can become an even more valuable asset to your client; you become part of your client’s team.”
No stranger to San Diego, Hanaa has worked at local offices of Bank of America/Merrill Lynch as a global treasury management advisor and senior vice president, as well as Union Bank of California and Silicon Valley Bank. She is a Certified Treasury Professional with extensive background in global treasury management, advisory sales, business development and relationship management.
Hanaa has applied her training and experience in treasury management to help her clients more effectively manage their cash flow. Hanaa believes that the impact of ineffective working capital management can be disastrous to a business. Hanaa states, “It is our duty as bankers to guide our clients into effective working capital management practices and help them navigate and mitigate risk.”
When not at work, theater goers may find Hanaa at La Jolla Playhouse, where she has served as a board member for nine years, also serving on the theater’s finance, investment and audit committees. She is an active member of both the national and regional Associations for Financial Professionals, Business Executives Council and supports various local charities. She has a soft spot for helping children specifically in the areas of health, safety and education.
Hanaa is originally from Alexandria, Egypt and earned her degree in English Language and Literature from the University of Alexandria. She earned her accreditation as a Certified Treasury Professional from the Association of Financial Professionals.
If our Mandarin-speaking friends are asking why Hanaa doesn’t speak Mandarin too, fear not, she’s currently studying the language…and trying to keep up with her high school-aged son who is already fluent.
Welcome, bienvenudos, bienvenue, Marhaba and Dobro Pozhalovt, Hanaa! (Um, we’re still working on our Mandarin, too.)
