Sunwest Bank Acquires Assets and Deposits From FDIC as Receiver for Syringa Bank in Idaho

BOISE, ID -- (Marketwired) -- 01/31/14 -- On January 31, 2014, Syringa Bank was closed by the Idaho Department of Finance. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) was then named Receiver. Subsequent to the closure, Sunwest Bank, headquartered in Irvine, CA, acquired substantially all of the deposits and assets of Syringa Bank from the FDIC as Receiver for Syringa Bank.

The former Syringa Bank will reopen Monday, February 3, 2014 as part of Sunwest Bank. Representatives from Sunwest Bank will be available at former Syringa Bank branches to answer questions from current and prospective clients. Existing Syringa clients will be able to conduct business as usual, as their money will be available through checks, ATM and debit cards. Loan clients should continue to make their payments to former Syringa Bank offices.

"We are excited to welcome the valued clients and talented employees of Syringa Bank to our growing family," said Chris Walsh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sunwest Bank. "Sunwest Bank is committed to providing a superior customer experience and we look forward to delivering high-quality, relationship-based community banking products and services to the businesses and residents of Idaho."

"For decades, we have operated under a code of values, rooted in fiscal responsibility, that have enabled us to remain strong and stable despite fluctuations in the economic climate," Walsh explained. Actively doing business, and well positioned for growth, Sunwest Bank's loan fundings surpassed $134 million in 2013. Sunwest Bank's net income was $11.8 million, nearly double from 2012. Additionally, Sunwest Bank's leverage and tier 1 risk-based capital ratios, which are key measures of a bank's financial strength, were more than double the amount required to be considered well capitalized on December 31, 2013.

Sunwest Bank has been a dedicated partner to the communities they serve for 45 years. "We are excited to expand our footprint and continue the community bank tradition in Idaho," said Chris Walsh. "Sunwest Bank understands what it means to be a relationship-focused community bank and we strive to be a good corporate citizen by giving back to our communities." Over the past three years, Sunwest Bank has invested more than $1.5 million in community and charitable programs. During the same time period, our employees enhanced those contributions by donating over 3,000 volunteer hours.

An established community bank, Sunwest has offices in California, Arizona, Washington and now in Idaho. Sunwest Bank offers a wide range of financial products to individuals, professionals, homeowner associations, and small to mid-sized businesses. The Bank's solution-driven, relationship-based approach to banking provides accessibility to decision makers and enhances value through strong partnerships with our clients.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will d...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
