Torrey Pines Bank hired Fred Voss as Bay Area regional president. He will be based in Oakland.
Voss comes with a mandate: Build the bank’s presence in San Jose. That’s a natural extension of the bank’s existing Bay Area franchise, which includes the Oakland office as well as one in Los Altos.
“His contagious can-do attitude will be an asset,” said Torrey Pines CEO Gary Cady, who notes that this is an “exciting time in our economy as we’re seeing many new businesses in the area and others looking to grow and expand.”
Voss says he’s looking forward to working with privately held companies and real estate investors and owners in the Bay Area, where he’s lived most of his life.
Voss was most recently senior vice president and leader of a commercial real estate lending team at Boston Private Bank Trust Co., (NASDAQ: BPFH) working in the Bay Area, according to his LinkedIn profile. His Bay Area banking career also includes posts at Citibank, (NYSE: C) Wells Fargo, (NYSE: WFC) Bank of America (NYSE: BAC) and Union Bank.
His nonprofit work includes frequent volunteering for the American Heart Association, Meals on Wheels and Family House, a San Francisco nonprofit that provides temporary housing to families with seriously ill children.
Torrey Pines Bank, founded in 2003, is part of Western Alliance Bancorp.’s Western Alliance Bank. Torrey Pines operates 11 offices in San Diego, Los Angeles and the Bay Area.
Western Alliance Bancorp. (NYSE: WAL) is a $10 billion regional bank with offices in California, Arizona and Nevada.
