New Accelerate OC Podcast: President of Sunwest Bank

It was very timely to have Carson Lappetito on the show.

Accelerate OC Podcast with Carson LappetitoHe is currently the President of Sunwest Bank, an OC-based business bank started 50 years ago by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs.

Sunwest is active in Orange County and works with businesses from startups to multi-national corporations.  Carson is also innovative in how he thinks about technology in the banking industry and even rolled out an online application for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) ahead of almost every other bank in the country.  They discussed that as well as how the bank is responding to the current COVID19 crisis.

Carson is a banker, and also an entrepreneur, and often those 2 things seem to run counter to each other.  He’s worked in a variety of roles with numerous financial institutions. He is also an investor in other businesses and was part of a hedge fund focused on investment opportunities in the financial services industry.  Carey and Carson are both transplants to Orange County with their Economics degrees, so they’re kindred spirits there, but Carson is way smarter - he also studied Political Science and got a minor in Mandarin.

The show covered a lot of ground around fintech innovation, banking, the economy and the current stimulus program. Enjoy!

Thanks to Accelerate OC show host Carey Ransom for another interesting episode promoting Orange County startups!
