We’re pleased to announce that Ben Price has rejoined Regents Bank. After a brief time away exploring another career path, Ben decided that community banking is his true calling. We were sad to see him go but wished him well. Now, we’re overjoyed to have him back!
Ben has a long history with Regents – having joined our team as a relationship manager 13 years ago. He works from our downtown office and has extensive experience banking small to mid-sized businesses, including Port of San Diego tenants, technology companies and real estate firms. He also enjoys developing business and real estate loans for his clients.
“I’m so happy to be back, and I feel like I’m returning with even more enthusiasm,” said Ben. “Being welcomed so warmly by my colleagues and my clients makes me feel like the luckiest person in the world.”
Ben came to us with a background in technology, as well as real estate investing, appraising, construction financing and sales, which gives him unique insight into what it takes to manage and run a business and connect with customers. It also means he knows a thing or two about the real estate acquisition process.
Ben is an active member of the San Diego-Tijuana Chapter of Urban Land Institute (ULI), which is focused on land use and urban planning. He’s in charge of its membership committee and serves on its senior management committee. Ben is also a member of Friends of Downtown San Diego, which provides scholarship money to San Diego City College students who demonstrate not only economic need but also academic achievement and determination. Ben is considering a board position with Friends of Downtown because he likes “making good things happen for people.”
In his free time, Ben enjoys golfing and exercising. He also loves to spend time with his wife and two sons.
