Silvergate Bank named Dino D’Auria as its new executive vice president and chief banking officer.
D’Auria, who will work out of Silvergate Bank’s headquarters in La Jolla, brings more than 25 years of banking experience to his new position. Most recently, D’Auria was president of the commercial banking group of a mid-sized West Coast bank, where he achieved a number of milestones in loan and deposit growth while reorganizing operations, opening offices and recruiting new bankers. His experience in the San Diego area includes holding senior vice president roles from 1998 through 2010 at U.S. Bank/San Diego National Bank and Comerica Bank/Imperial Bank. His prior experience also includes eight years with Wells Fargo.
“Dino’s exceptional commercial banking experience, skills and accomplishments make him especially well qualified to lead Silvergate Bank’s expanding business banking efforts throughout San Diego County,” said Alan Lane, Silvergate Bank’s president and CEO. “Dino’s strengths as a banker and manager will be invaluable to our commitment to redefine business banking by providing superior banking services to our clients. We are very pleased to welcome Dino to the Silvergate team and look forward to his directing the further growth of our commercial banking efforts.”
