Genesis Bank announced today that it has entered into a partnership agreement with the Orange County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (“OCHCC”). The partnership is focused on financial advancement of the Hispanic American community, and includes financial education, assisting low- and moderate-income families, growing small business, internships, and mentorships.

Stephen H. Gordon, founding chairman and chief executive officer, stated, “We are incredibly excited to be collaborating with the OCHCC through this important strategic partnership. For over 35 years, the OCHCC has proudly served the Hispanic American business community of Orange County, California, through its broad network of corporate, public, university, nonprofit, and community leaders. With over 30,000 Hispanic-owned businesses located in Orange County, the OCHCC has an extensive track record of supporting the development of local businesses through their broad networking, capital, education, and training programs.”

Mr. Gordon concluded, “Forming this strategic partnership with the OCHCC is a meaningful step toward fulfilling Genesis Bank’s commitment to serving the financial needs of minority-owned small to medium-sized businesses, as one of only two diverse, multi-racial Minority Depository Institutions (MDI) in the U.S. We look forward to collaborating with the OCHCC team as Genesis Bank delivers its technology-enabled banking products, services, solutions, and expertise, to our majority-minority business communities.”

Reuben D. Franco, chief executive officer and president of the OCHCC, stated, “We are very excited to partner with Genesis Bank and commend their significant achievements in officially launching and becoming an MDI. We believe the Bank’s diverse, multiracial focus as an MDI distinguishes their commitment to the community from other banking institutions and is a much-needed banking resource to the Orange County Hispanic business community.”
