Torrey Pines Bank last week appointed Fred Voss regional president of the San Francisco Bay Area market.
Voss will be responsible for growing the bank’s market share in the Bay Area, and will lead area teams in providing commercial banking services for growth-oriented business owners, real estate investors and professionals. Voss is a 25-year banking industry veteran with senior-level experience in business banking, commercial lending and relationship development.
Voss, a longtime Bay Area resident, will work out of Torrey Pines Bank’s Oakland location while overseeing its Los Altos office at 20 First St. and establishing the bank’s footprint in San Jose.
“Given his proven track record focusing on teamwork and working closely with local businesses to provide added value, Fred Voss shares the values of Torrey Pines Bank,” said CEO Gary Cady. “His contagious can-do attitude will be an asset in leading our Oakland and Los Altos offices to help area organizations take their business pursuits to the next level during this exciting time in our economy as we’re seeing many new businesses in the area and others looking to grow and expand.”
Voss said privately held small to mid-sized market and professional service companies clustered throughout the Bay Area are the “backbone in supporting and propelling growth” in the region.
“I am excited to join Torrey Pines Bank and its vibrant team of knowledgeable banking experts to help these local business owners grow their businesses and the local economy,” he said. “As someone who has lived in the area for most of my life and has family and is a member of the community here, I look forward to joining an institution that places a focus on local businesses and decision-making first and puts a priority on giving back to the local community.”
Voss earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and business from UCLA.
Outside of his professional bank role, he has served as coach, referee and treasurer for nonprofit youth leagues and clubs in the Bay Area. He also volunteers at the American Heart Association, Meals on Wheels and the Family House, a San Francisco-based nonprofit organization that provides temporary housing for families of seriously ill children.
Founded in 2003, Torrey Pines Bank is a division of Western Alliance Bank, a wholly owned subsidiary of Western Alliance Bancorporation. Overall, the company has $10 billion in assets.
