CommerceWest Bank (OTCBB:CWBK) sponsored the Orange County Business Council annual dinner. The theme was Breaking Free - from economic constraints, over-regulation and old ways of doing business - setting your business apart in a tough economy. The Orange County Business Council is the leading voice of businesses on important issues locally, regionally and nationally. The organization works to enhance Orange County's economic development and prosperity to preserve a high quality of life. Mr. Ivo Tjan, Chairman and CEO of CommerceWest Bank stated, "We felt that it was important to support the Orange County Business Council and this event because businesses continue to use the economy as the reason that they are not doing well. They focus on the economy instead of finding creative and innovative ways to be different from their competitors." He continued, "We provide our clients with banking, economic, financial and business guidance. We work with our clients to structure solutions and business plans that help them achieve success despite the economy." CommerceWest Bank has been redefining banking since inception.
