Darla Clark named a 2013 Women Worth Watching by Diversity Journal 
We are pleased to announce that Executive Vice President Darla Clark has been named a 2013 Women Worth Watching by the Diversity Journal, a national magazine focusing on diversity/inclusion in business, government, non-profit, higher education and military settings. According to the publication, it is teamwork and leading by example that distinguishes Darla and the other women honored. 
Darla received a full page profile in which she shared sage advice and great insights, including: 
“I always tell my employees or others who are looking to enter into a new field or role to ask successful people what they did to get where they are – the answer may surprise you.” 
Darla’s path to a senior leadership role at Regents Bank started as a bank teller at the Bank of Hawaii.  She worked during the day and attended college at night to earn a business degree. When she entered the banking industry in the early 1970s, women did not typically have management positions. 
“Success evolves from building relationships. I also believe completely in a philosophy that was best phrased by President Ronald Reagan: ‘There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don't care who gets the credit.’” 
Darla leads by example. She acts not only as a banker to her clients but also as a consultant.  Utilizing this consultative strategy is a key component to Darla maintaining strong business relationships, many for 20 plus years. 
“To stay competitive, you must work harder than everyone else.  Keep abreast of political and economic news that affects your industry and your clients.” 
Darla, like all of the Regents Bank professionals, understands the significance the economy and politics has on our clients’ businesses.  To be a trusted advisor, one must understand all aspects of the challenges our clients are facing. 
“Create your own destiny – be proactive in asking for and accomplishing what you want.” 
Congratulations, Darla, on being a Women Worth Watching and thank you for your contributions to Regents Bank and the San Diego Community.
