Americas United Bank Announces Major Hiring Coup!

AUB hires Arturo Concha - one of the top SBA loan producers in the United States!


Glendale, CA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–May 2, 2007–Americas United Bank (AUB) (OTCBB:AUNB) is proud to announce its most recent appointment of Arturo Concha to the position of Senior Vice President and Manager of the SBA/Commercial Capital Division. Concha’s drive, competitive spirit and ability to close business deals made him one of the most sought-after SBA executives in the banking industry. AUB’s CEO and President Gil Dalmau announced Concha’s appointment today. “As the first primarily Latino-owned bank in California in over 30 years, AUB has enjoyed tremendous momentum from our launch until now. The addition of Arturo Concha is significant to our bank as we strive to accommodate the banking needs of small to mid-sized businesses in our target market. Mr. Concha is considered one of the top SBA producers in the entire country and we are proud to add his leadership, skills and unbridled tenacity to our SBA/Commercial Capital division.”

Concha comes to AUB from Banco Popular where he was a top producer nationwide for several years in-a-row. “Americas United Bank has all the ingredients to become a phenomenal, ground-breaking bank. The experience of AUB’s founders, personnel and board of directors is inspiring! I am very proud that this group of business pioneers wanted me on their team. I look forward to serving the needs of our small business community and to establishing AUB as a top-producing SBA Lender,” states Concha.

Concha attributes his success to his daughters. His desire to be a giving father ignited his competitive spirit and inspired him to want to flourish so that he could provide for his children in a way that was unavailable to him growing up.

Arturo Concha likens his approach to that of an MD. When a doctor sees a patient, he evaluates the circumstance and seeks a solution. Concha examines the need of a client, evaluates the situation and then seeks a financial resolution for him or her in a similar manner. In addition, he charts a client’s financial history in a similar way that a doctor chronicles a medical history — all critical factors for what he does.

When asked to recall a favorite moment in his business career, Concha fondly reflects upon a transaction that took place a few years ago. At that time, Concha helped finance a deal for one of his customers who had eleven brothers. During the course of the transaction, Concha garnered a terrific relationship with the entire family. Eventually, he helped all of the brothers secure financing for their respective businesses. “I’m a bridge builder,” says Concha proudly. “Now that I am at Americas United Bank, I have the tools to build skyscrapers too!”
