Empowering Family Businesses to Grow and Achieve Their California Dreams

“Family is the key. We are a California business. That’s the reason we went with Banc of California, to have that local family feel.”

– Lance Coury Sr., CEO, Setwear Products

As a California-based entrepreneur and business owner, Lance Coury Sr. knows something about seizing opportunities. He owned a sign-painting business for the entertainment industry in Los Angeles. One day, he envisioned an idea for a new line of safety products for TV and movie production crews. “I integrated the need for customized safety gear with products used in motocross. I thought, let’s make something cool for them.” His innovative thinking led to the successful launch of Setwear Products.

Tien Nguyen is the Branch Manager in Pasadena for Banc of California. He provided Lance with personal and business banking accounts and lending to empower his business. He also supported him with exceptional personal service. “Anytime Lance needs answers or support, he can call my cell phone, at any time of day. He knows I’ll be there for him. That’s what separates Banc of California from other banks. It’s the strong relationships we build to empower and grow our clients’ businesses.”

Lance Coury Sr. noticed that professional motocross riders, including his son, Lance Coury Jr., wore their own custom, high-quality gloves and safety gear. He applied that same idea to the entertainment industry and the safety gear worn by production crews and formed Setwear Products. Looking to expand his product line beyond entertainment, he developed safety gear for workers in the construction and oil and gas industries. Setwear Products has now built a loyal following among crews that appreciate a quality product, made specifically for them.

“I’m always creating new products, and it’s exciting. I look forward to going to the office every day. I am doing what I want in life. Having Banc of California there to help me grow makes it that much easier.”
