Bankers have a reputation of being boring and methodical, but not George Haligowski.
ITLA Capital's chairman of the board, president and chief executive officer feels the need for speed on the racetrack, where he races Formula One Ferraris. In business, his bank races past other institutions. With a second-degree black belt, scuba diving and all things fast, it's no wonder that Haligowski's bank reported net income of $6.7 million or $1.18 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, compared to $5.8 million or 98 cents per diluted share for the same period last year.
Talk about fast: ITLA Capital Corp. is the largest financial services company headquartered in San Diego, and serves the western United States, the Southeast, the Mid-Atlantic States, the Ohio Valley, the Metro New York area and New England.
