Everett Orrick established BBVA Compass’ Commercial Banking Office in Los Angeles in 2013. BBVA Compass is one of the fastest growing commercial banks in the country. Under Orrick’s leadership, California became one of the BBVA’s largest growth engines for new loans. After taking on the responsibility of CEO for California, Orrick recruited experienced corporate banker Steve Flynn, in December of 2017, to lead Los Angeles. Together, they filled out BBVA’s existing LA banking team by adding three more seasoned bankers.
In his five years with BBVA in Los Angeles, Orrick lead or participated in hundreds of millions of dollars in financing for organizations from the broader Commercial and Industrial market, as well as through BBVA’s special focus on lending to healthcare companies, automobile dealerships, franchise food companies, tax exempt entities, and municipalities. BBVA provided financing for lines of credit, asset based loans, real estate, and equipment, in both traditional and highly leveraged structures.
