Bridge Bank Welcomes Rick Lamoreux as Senior Vice President in Southern California Corporate Banking Group
Bridge Bank today announced Rick Lamoreux has joined its Southern California Corporate Banking team as senior vice president, business line manager. In this position, Rick will be responsible for accelerating the growth of the corporate lending activities in the region, and for leading a team of client-focused relationship managers.
“Rick and I worked together at Irwin Union Bank and Beach Business Bank and I am very pleased to have the opportunity to work with him again,” said Caroline Harkins, senior vice president and Southern California region director. “Rick joins Bridge Bank with proven credit and management skills, and he thrives in a client-centric environment where he can craft unique banking solutions. I look forward to his success in his role as business line manager.”
Rick has 15 years of experience in corporate and commercial banking, including financial analysis, new business cultivation and relationship development and management. He started his career at Comerica Bank in the middle-market lending group and most recently held the position of senior managing director of the Corporate Finance Division at Opus Bank where he focused on providing senior debt for private equity-backed leveraged buyouts and recapitalizations. Rick holds a B.S. in Business and Management from the University of Redlands and an M.B.A. in Corporate Finance and Entrepreneurship from the University of Southern California, Marshall School of Business.
“I decided to join Bridge for a number of reasons. Bridge Bank, as a part of the Western Alliance family, has the financial wherewithal to compete with larger banks, while at the same time operates in a very responsive, flexible and entrepreneurial environment. These factors, coupled with the highly experienced management team and strong credit culture were very compelling to me,” said Lamoreux. “I’m excited to be part of a rapidly growing institution, and am looking forward to growing the Corporate Banking group through a combination of financings for private equity sponsored buyouts and recapitalizations, employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) transactions, loans to owner-operated businesses and investor real estate transactions.”
