The bank has been doing so well that they have started to expand further into Southern California. With this move, they specifically aim to have a greater reach into Orange County as a whole. To achieve this, they have attracted new members of staff in the person of Sam Tuyen and Stephen Whang.
Sam Tuyen is taking on the role of Vice President of Commercial Real Estate and SBA Lending. He is highly experienced in this and knowledgeable of Orange County, having come from CDC Small Business Finance in Orange County, where he was the Senior Commercial Lender.
The SBA 504 program offers a fixed below-market rate loan with ONLY 10% DOWN. Now you can preserve cash, benefit from tax savings and build owner equity. We Pre-Qualify in 24 Hours.
With 20 years of experience under his belt, Mr. Tuyen is set to become a key asset of the company. He is also truly local, having obtained a business management and economics degree from the University of California in Irvine.
Meanwhile, Stephen Whang will take on the position of Vice President, Business Development Manager. He will hold responsibility for making sure that the financial needs of entrepreneurs and businesses in both Los Angeles and Orange County as a whole will be met. Like Mr. Tuyen, Mr. Whang has a wealth of experience behind him, with a background in relationship management and business lending. He has been in the industry for over 15 years, helping businesses across Southern California become successful. Before his position with the Bank of Southern California, Stephen Whang was with the Bank of the West.

Similar to Mr. Tuyen, Mr. Whang is also a true California native, having obtained his bachelor’s degree at the University of California, Los Angeles. The appointment of these two financial bigwigs has even been reported on in Coleman Movers & Shakers, who quoted the bank’s Executive Vice President and Chief Banking Officer, Tony DiVita.
We are extremely pleased to have these outstanding bankers join Bank of Southern California. They bring a comprehensive understanding of the Los Angeles and Orange County business community, and they both offer a wide range of expertise that will enable us to best serve the financial needs of business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals in those markets.
