Americas United Bank (AUB)
Appoints George Sevilla
Americas United Bank (AUB) announced the appointment of George Sevilla to the position of Director of Sales headquartered in Glendale, CA. Sevilla recently held the position of Team Leader for Banco Popular North America and brings over 10 years of banking success and experience to AUB.
“George Sevilla is another terrific addition to the AUB team," announced CEO and President Gil Dalmau. "His ability to produce made him a unanimous choice to fill our Director of Sales position. In this position, George will manage the bank’s business development team. We are delighted to have him on board as we continue to grow our business.”
Sevilla’s interest in banking was sparked while he was attending San Diego State University. At an early age, he learned that most CEO’s of companies possessed Finance Degrees. He realized back then that he wanted to major in Finance. Eventually, he narrowed his degree major to Institutional Finance and Banking.
After college, Sevilla was recruited by Sumitomo Bank to participate in their Account Officer Training program. He observed that this bank was focused on reaching out to the Hispanic community and for that reason was very interested in him. He knew that what ever he did in the future would revolve around serving the Latino community. His position at AUB enables him to do just that.
Sevilla is a native Californian who was born in Torrance, CA. He credits his hard working parents for instilling positive values and a desire to help others reach their full potential. “I always approach every client / prospect of mine with the same level of professionalism and willingness to assist,” states Sevilla.
AUB’s new Director of Sales astutely observes that as his customers’ businesses have grown so has their banking relationship with him, representing the ultimate win-win situation. Sevilla takes a consultative approach in his work. He explains that his clients or prospects come to him with a particular need and he takes pride and care in figuring out the best product or service he can recommend. The end result is ensuring that the client saves time, money or energy which in turn allows them to focus on their business.
Sevilla understands the value of knowledge. He is keen to share his knowledge with people who show an effort and an eagerness to learn. He is married to a very supportive and wonderful woman named Alena and has three wonderful children, Danielle, Alyssa and Jared. A man of all-seasons, Sevilla enjoys snowboarding, golfing, body boarding and mountain biking.
