Community West Bancshares (NASDAQ:CWBC), the parent company of Community West Bank, has announced that Dana L. Boutain and Tom L. Dobyns have been appointed to its Board of Directors.

They've also been named to the Board of Directors of Community West Bank, the company's wholly owned subsidiary.

“We are very pleased to have Dana and Tom join our Board of Directors,” said William Peeples, board chairman.

“Each of them brings a wealth of experience and financial expertise which will be extremely valuable as Community West Bank continues to grow throughout Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties,” Peeples said.

Boutain is a managing director in the Oxnard office of CBIZ, an accountancy, financial services and insurance services firm.

During her tenure of more than 27 years with CBIZ, she has specialized in tax planning and consulting, transaction structuring and financial statement compilations and reviews for businesses in the construction, manufacturing and real estate industries.

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!
