Priority Banking unit now open in Villa Park


Orange County, September 6, 2010 – Union Bank, N.A., today announced the opening of a new Priority Banking unit in Villa Park. The new unit is located at 17769 Santiago Boulevard and will be overseen by Priority Banking Relationship Manager Walid Zidan, who will provide individual consultation and offer a suite of specialized financial services to affluent individuals, families and small business owners.

“We are extremely excited to continue to grow our network of Priority Banking units in Orange County,” says Senior Vice President and Market President Lawrence Henry. “We know that Walid will continue to deliver on our Priority Promise of providing unequaled personal service to meet the financial needs of our valued clients.”

Union Bank began offering Priority Banking to its customers in 1975. The number of clients using the program has grown steadily in recent years, and the bank continues to expand the program by opening more units.  Priority Bankers are specially trained to service the bank’s clients who maintain a minimum of $100,000 on deposit in any combination of personal and business banking, investment, or retirement accounts.  Priority Bankers also help small business owners integrate their personal and business finances into a comprehensive plan to maximize returns, as well as assist them with such issues as succession planning.

Zidan joins Union Bank with nearly 10 years of experience in the financial services industry.  Prior to joining Union Bank, he worked as a premiere banker for Wachovia Bank and as a personal banker for Citibank, becoming a leading performer in the Orange County region.  He earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance from Cairo University.
