Welcome to Pan American Bank

A Message From President and CEO, Jesse Torres

As a son of East Los Angeles and the President and CEO of Pan American Bank, I am truly excited and honored to welcome you to our bank.  Few institutions in our community have the rich history of Pan American Bank. For over 45 years  Pan American Bank has proudly served the small businesses and families of East Los Angeles and Santa Ana.

Since 1964, Pan American Bank has consistently provided financial services to the local community that others could not or would not provide. From small business loans to auto loans to home loans, we have been here to serve the community’s needs; we will continue to be here for the community.

It has been a tremendous honor for Pan American Bank, its employees and shareholders to watch the children and grandchildren of its original customers grow up. We aim to serve multiple generations through our commitment to the businesses, organizations and families that make up our incredible community.

Having been born at White Memorial Hospital, attended school at Fourth Street Elementary, worshiped at St. Alphonsus Parish and played sports at Belevedere Park, I have seen all that is good in the community. Pan American Bank could not have survived more than 45 years without the support of the local community.  As the President and CEO of California’s oldest Latino-owned bank, I encourage you to visit us to learn more about Pan American Bank.
