The Bank is the wholly owned subsidiary of Pacific Mercantile Bancorp. Ms. Rohani will be leading the Bank's effort to continue to grow its largest office with a focus on the financial needs of Orange County's technology companies. "We are thrilled to have someone with Ms. Rohani's technology background concentrate on a niche we are looking forward to growing at PMB," stated Tom Vertin, President of Commercial Banking.
