WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — November 8, 2022 — Pacific Coast Bankers’ Bancshares and its wholly-owned subsidiary, PCBB, announced the promotion of Cindy Cheng to Chief Credit Officer, following the planned retirement of Nino Petroni, former CCO.

I am delighted to have Cindy promoted to Chief Credit Officer”, said Mike Dohren, President of PCBB. “Cindy has played a key role as Senior Credit Administrator and has worked closely with Nino Petroni since the beginning when she was hired. We put a succession plan in place, and I am pleased that Cindy is well-prepared to take over the CCO role. Cindy has been working closely with Nino Petroni for a smooth transition, since he announced his retirement earlier in the year. She has been instrumental in improving and innovating our loan processes and will continue to position PCBB for success in the future.

Cindy joined PCBB nearly 9 years ago, as an experienced commercial lending professional. Under Nino’s mentorship through the years, Cindy has worked to streamline and enhance PCBB’s credit processes and expand our various credit-related products, in order to offer more to our clients. In this elevated position of CCO, she will be responsible for continuing to drive PCBB’s lending strategy and leading overall risk management of our loan portfolio. She has received the full support of management and our board of directors.
