Dan C. Yates was named
president of Grandpoint Bank yesterday. He was previously chief executive
officer of La Jolla, Calif.-based Regents Bank, which became a wholly owned
subsidiary of Grandpoint Capital, Inc., in January 2012. Dan was the founding
president and chief executive officer of Regents Bank when it opened in 2001.
He will continue to serve on the Regents Bank board of directors. Dan’s former
role at Regents Bank has been assumed by Regents President Steven D. Sefton.
In announcing the appointment, Don M. Griffith, chairman and chief executive officer of Grandpoint Capital and Grandpoint Bank, said, “Dan is a very knowledgeable banker and one of the most successful sales and business development experts in our business. We are fortunate to have his leadership on the frontlines of Grandpoint Bank, where he will be responsible for driving our internal growth and developing new product strategies.”
Dan has more than 32 years of banking experience in Southern California. He brings to Grandpoint a unique consultative approach to client relationships -- serving as a professional advisor and business partner to clients, not just a banker -- which he honed during his 11 years leading Regents Bank.
We are very pleased to welcome Dan to Grandpoint Bank.
