California BanCorp, the holding company for California Bank of Commerce, has expanded its Northern California presence with the addition of Michael Nicita as executive vice president and senior credit administrator.

Nicita will be based out of the Sacramento office and will be responsible for overseeing high-quality credit underwriting.

“We are thrilled to have Mike join us,” said Scott Myers, senior executive vice president and chief lending officer. “He joins our team with experience in agricultural lending, which adds to the bank’s already well-established expertise in the manufacturing, contracting, professional services, dental and veterinary industries.”

Nicita has more than two decades of experience in commercial banking with an extensive background in the middle market. Prior to joining CBC, he served as managing director and senior credit manager at Union Bank. He has also held positions at Wells Fargo, US Bank, Bank of America and Sacramento Commercial Bank.
