Mihaylo finance alumnus and commercial banking executive Gary Green ’80 will be honored at Cal State Fullerton’s annual Vision & Visionaries event on Feb. 20 for his involvement with his alma mater and the Orange County community.
When Gary Green ’80 (finance) graduated from the Cal State Fullerton business program, he embarked on a decades-long commercial banking career, yet he never lost his passion for his alma mater.
“Cal State Fullerton has equipped me with knowledge that has served as a strong foundation for my career,” he says. “In turn, my success has given me the opportunity to positively impact today’s students.”
Currently executive vice-president and Orange County manager for commercial banking at California Bank & Trust, Green oversees four retail branch offices and two commercial loan centers. In light of the rash of foreclosures and bankruptcies that accompanied the Great Recession, he has been influential in supporting financial literacy outreach, ensuring that consumers and local business leaders are making calculated and informed choices that will benefit the local economy.
