The GUARDIAN has learned of the imminent appointment of Rob Perez, a local banker, to the Greater Boise Auditorium District Board. He will be confirmed at the Monday meeting to fill the vacancy created by the departure of former board member Mike Fitzgerald.
The following bio was provided by the District:
Rob Perez joined Idaho First National Bank as a management trainee in 1979 which began a 31 year career encompassing a variety of lending and credit management roles. After 13 years with the Bank’s corporate banking division, the last 7 years of which was spent as group manager, Rob left to start the bank’s first Commercial Real Estate Division.
By then Idaho First had changed its name to West One Bank and had sold to U.S. Bank of Portland. From 1996 until 2001 Rob served as Senior Vice President and Intermountain Division Manager for U.S. Bank, which encompassed production offices in Boise, Spokane, Reno, Las Vegas and Salt Lake City and involved a loan portfolio in excess of $1 billion dollars.
In 2008 Rob left U.S. Bank to help found Western Capital Bank, an FDIC insured commercial bank focused on serving businesses and professionals. Today Rob serves as the President and CEO of Western Capital Bank and a Director of the Bank Holding Company, Western Capital Corporation. WCB is the only Boise-based bank with a 5-Star rating by two independent rating services.
