AUB Hires One of the Top SBA Loan
Producers in the United States
Americas United Bank (AUB) announced its most recent appointment of Arturo
Concha, one of the top SBA loan producers in the United States, to the position
of Senior Vice President and Manager of the SBA/ Commercial Capital Division.
AUB’s CEO and President Gil Dalmau announced Concha’s appointment.
“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
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,”
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, according to a press release from AUB.
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. “Now that I am
at Americas United Bank, I have the tools to build skyscrapers too!”
