Genesis Bank Announces Partnership With Asian Business Association of Orange County

Genesis Bank announced that it has entered into a partnership agreement with the Asian Business Association of Orange County (“ABAOC”). The partnership focuses on critically important initiatives covering small businesses growth, financial literacy education, internships, mentorships, and business development opportunities through programs designed specifically to positively impact the financial success of Asian American owned businesses in Orange County, California.

“Over the course of developing this partnership, we listened to many of the key constituents of the Asian American business community and now look forward to positively impacting the growth and success of minority small business owners, entrepreneurs, and business professionals.”

Stephen H. Gordon, Founding Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the ABAOC, who for over 25 years has been a leader in serving the minority-owned small business community in Orange County. We collectively recognize there is a void in banking of those committed to consistently providing high quality, technology focused, and transparent banking services to the Asian American community, which has historically been underserved at both the local and national levels. This was especially evident during the recent pandemic, where so many minority-owned small businesses lacked access to the essential financial services necessary to navigate the economic challenges facing their business.”

Mr. Gordon added, “Over the course of developing this partnership, we listened to many of the key constituents of the Asian American business community and now look forward to positively impacting the growth and success of minority small business owners, entrepreneurs, and business professionals.”

Mr. Gordon concluded, “While the banking community has steadily worked to improve the quality and accessibility of banking services to minority groups, at Genesis Bank, as one of only two diverse, multi-racial Minority Depository Institutions (“MDI”) in the U.S., we are committed to stepping up to address the void and making a difference by contributing our comprehensive resources, technology, products, services, and solutions to our culturally and generationally diverse Asian American communities.”

Together, we share the same passion towards serving our community of Asian American owned small businesses and look forward to making a big impact.”
