How I can help you
Van Dyke is a retired commercial business banker from San Diego as well as a former founding Board member of a small independent bank in Arizona. His career covered virtually every segment of commercial banking with an emphasis on numerous industry disciplines. Client industry relationships included: manufacturing, distribution, construction contractors and sub-contractors, medical/health care, aerospace, sports, education, etc. His multifaceted background lends well to mentoring new and established entrepreneurs who have passion, a drive to succeed and a commitment to making their dreams a reality. Straightforward communication is critical to develop trust on both sides of the table. Very inspiring to visit clients place of business to glean knowledge and awareness not received in an in-office setting. This effort also excites clients to show off their successes and hard work. Effective long term client relationships depend on a two-way exchange of information with the management team and their respective CPAs, attorneys, insurance professionals and other strategic advisors. Van Dyke's strategy has always been to provide clients alternatives/options in their financial/banking decisions. Goal setting and action plans, with accountability, serve to keep the focus in a positive direction.
Most of his career was spent assisting growth companies in the region to achieve goals of expansion, improving bottom-line profitability, diversified product offerings and eventual sale or family pass down of the company, allowing for a comfortable retirement transition.
Upon retirement, Van Dyke relocated to Arizona and has also lived in Washington, DC and Las Vegas, Nevada, with the latter where his SCORE volunteering began.
