Our Regional President, Stephen Friedman, Profiled by San Diego Business Journal

Stephen Friedman headshot NEWRecently, San Diego Business Journal ran a story profiling our regional president, Stephen Friedman. If you have a subscription to the publication, you can access the article in the September 1, 2017 issue.

Stephen spoke about Regents Bank’s philosophy of creating value at a deeper level for our clients and about how his personal experience as a C-suite executive at food companies provided valuable insight that he leverages in his banking career.

While many of our readers know Stephen as our regional president and before that as executive vice president and regional manager of our La Jolla office, he has also been an entrepreneur and a corporate CFO.

Stephen’s banking career included a hiatus, during which time he took on roles in C-suite management of some food companies and even owned a bakery business. Those experiences gave him the feet-on-the-ground knowledge he relies on to understand the business challenges and opportunities our clients face.

In his role now as regional president, he manages operations at all four of our San Diego offices in La Jolla, downtown, Vista and Escondido. We are fortunate to have Stephen and others like him on our staff — banking professionals who understand all stages of business growth and capital raising and apply that knowledge to help our clients.

If you’d like to learn more about Stephen and Regents Bank’s philosophy, we encourage you to read the great San Diego Business Journal profile story by reporter Sarah DeCrescenzo … or to connect with Stephen in person.
