As a current senior executive and the chief legal officer of Southern California Bancorp and Bank of Southern California, N.A., Khoi D. Dang brings with him a track record of delivering innovative legal and business solutions based on resourceful strategies. A dedicated community bank attorney with over 15 years’ experience – as a partner-level attorney at both boutique and international law firms – his unique industry perspective, appreciation of risks, and business acumen all come into play on a regular basis as he helps both executive management and boards of directors develop and actuate corporate-wide strategies while maintaining hands-on consultative relationships with individual business units.

He leveraged these core competencies when he advised First Choice Bancorp on its “go public” strategy in 2018.
