President elected for newest bank in Los Angeles.

Richard A. Smith, a senior officer at West Los Angeles banks over the past 25 years, has been elected President and a Director of The Private Bank of California in Century City.

The Private Bank of California opened for business on October 24 following a record initial public offering totaling $36.3 million, the largest IPO ever for a new bank in California.

For the past five years Smith has headed the private banking group at the Beverly Hills office of one of the country’s largest banks.

“Richard Smith is the ideal banker to serve as President of the Private Bank of California,” said Charles D. Kenny, chief executive officer. “Richard was one of the early architects of relationship banking. He recognized the importance of personal service in serving the banking needs of customers. That commitment has been validated over the years by the loyalty and following he has engendered with customers. At The Private Bank of California, Richard’s presence will ensure that our customers receive unsurpassed personal service.”

Smith and his wife, Dana, live in Sherman Oaks. He was graduated from the University of Denver with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.
