Brad Kirk has joined Grandpoint Bank’s Specialty Deposits group as Vice President/Relationship Manager. Kirk will be responsible for cultivating and maintaining specialty deposit client relationships for Grandpoint Bank. He will focus primarily on clients within the title insurance, independent escrow and property management industries.
Kirk has extensive work experience with specialty deposit clients, which are those clients who act in a fiduciary capacity, holding funds for a period but not owning those funds and, as a result, have complex cash management requirements.
“Specialty deposit clients rely upon some of our more sophisticated treasury products like automated clearing house (ACH) bank transfer network, mobile banking, fraud prevention and wire transfers,” said Kirk. “I’ve been working with title insurance firms since 2001, so I’m very familiar with the business and banking needs of these and similar firms. I’m looking forward to helping build Grandpoint’s specialty deposits business.”
Kirk previously worked in a similar capacity for City National Bank in Irvine, California and for MUFG Union Bank, also in Irvine, before that. He also worked as a Major Account Executive for Ellie Mae, a provider of enterprise level, on-demand, automated solutions for the residential mortgage industry.
Kirk is a member of Orange County Escrow Association, Los Angeles Escrow Association, Escrow Associates of San Gabriel Valley, California Land Title Association, American Land Title Association and California Escrow Association. He is also a member of Escrow Institute of California and serves on its event planning committee.
Kirk is a resident of Mission Viejo, California and works in Grandpoint Bank’s Orange office.
