Larry Tidwell has served as the executive vice president in the real estate industries group at AltaPacific Bank in Santa Rosa since April 2009. He oversees all construction lending, a responsibility he held in his previous position as executive vice president in the real estate industries group at Temecula Valley Bank.
Mr. Tidwell was born in Roswell, N.M., and has lived in the North Bay for 30 years. He cited the retention of customers over more than 15 years as a major accomplishment.
"I think one thing we will see in 2013 is more banks throwing their hat in the ring with regards to lending," he said. "This will lead to healthy competition amongst lenders, which will be good for borrowers as they will have more choices."
AltaPacific Bank was founded in 2006 and has assets of $222 million.Gus Zijlstra American River Bank 90 S. E St., Ste. 11, Santa Rosa 95404, americanriverbank.com, 707-528-6300
