Ale Ortega-Botello Joins Community West Bank

Community West Bancshares, parent company of Community West Bank, has announced Ale Ortega-Botello has joined the bank as vice president/relationship manager, with an office at Community West Bank’s Goleta full-service branch, 5827 Hollister Ave.
“Ale Ortega-Botello has been a local banker for over 30 years,” said Bill Filippin, executive vice president/CBO.

“She is well known throughout Goleta and Santa Barbara, and she possesses the commitment to building client relationships that we welcome at Community West Bank,” he said.

Before joining Community West Bank, Ortega-Botello was a senior relationship manager with Santa Barbara Community Bank, and previously was regional manager at the Bank of Santa Barbara.

She is a graduate of Pacific Coast Banking School and is involved with many local Santa Barbara and Goleta groups including serving on the Alpha Resource Center and Santa Barbara National Association of Women Business Owners boards of directors.

“As we continue to grow, we are excited to have Ale join us,” said Brian Schwabecher, regional president.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
