Regents Bank Celebrating 15 Years with Our Clients & Our Team
September marked 15 years in business for Regents Bank – our crystal anniversary. Much has happened in our world, our economy and our company during that time. We’re fortunate that valued clients and hard-working employees have been our constants, and we would like to give extra, special recognition to the following people:
Thank you to our legacy Regents Bank employees who have shared their talents with us since the beginning. They are our continuity and our inspiration.

Many clients have also been with us since we launched our bank, which we consider to be the highest form of compliment. Some of these legacy clients include:
La Jolla client:
Grande Colonial Hotel
Amidst the pristine beaches and regal bluffs of La Jolla’s coastal village, the Grande Colonial Hotel has been welcoming guests since 1913. Completely modernized, yet faithful to its storied past, this intimate boutique hotel harkens back to a quieter, more dignified era, when travel meant something special and personalized guest service was a hallmark of every stay.

Horenstein Law Group, PLLC
HLG is a progressive law firm founded by Steve and Cindy Horenstein. HLG maintains all of the positive values clients expect from a traditional law firm, including excellent, well-trained lawyers, a high level work product and responsiveness. In addition, the firm is responding to new client needs and expectations that have evolved in part because of the economy. The prolonged recession has forever changed the practice of law. Clients now expect a higher level of service, billings based on value received and results obtained, as well as better access to lawyers and documents through client (not lawyer) focused technology.
