Eusebio Cordova has been named senior vice president and chief credit officer at American Riviera Bank, according to Jeff DeVine, the community bank’s president and CEO.

“After interviewing a variety of candidates, we decided that our very best choice was already right here at the bank,” DeVine said. “Eusebio’s work ethic is second to none, and his familiarity with our bank in general — as well as our loan products, underwriting guidelines, loan policies and credit culture — will enable a quick transition into his new role.”

Prior to being named senior vice president and chief credit officer, Cordova was senior vice president of the commercial banking team.

He joined American Riviera Bank in August 2009 as vice president and commercial loan officer and by 2010 was considered the bank’s “construction loan expert.”

Cordova’s loan portfolio has grown into $100 million of construction, commercial real estate and business loans. 

Cordova may be reached at 805.730.4978 or [email protected].

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.
