Duration: 1 minute 51 seconds

My name is Dan Ketelaars.

I'm the Founder and CEO of Danko Foods Inc., and we bank with Partners Bank of California.

Danko Foods, Inc. got established in 1992, and we import fish from Europe and Africa—fresh and wild—as well as distribute mushrooms and poultry to high end hotels, restaurants, casinos and so forth in the United States.

Partners Bank and I have basically a relationship from the very beginning.

They support us in our credit needs.

They supported us with applications for PPP, and what have you programs that were offered by the government during the COVID crisis and been very helpful on a professional as well as on a personal level.

My client advisor Malinda Goller and I go way back, actually even before we started the business, and when I started to do my business or was planning to do it, they were there from day one.

They said, "This is what you need." "This is the kind of documents you need to fill out."

And that kind of relationship has basically continued until today.

As far as what's next for Danko Foods, Inc., we will continue to work together with Partners Bank of California.

As far as the long term is concerned, we will look at the next generation.

Danko Foods, Inc. has a strong reputation and we distribute all over the country, and we will be there for our customers, as I know Partners Bank of California will be there for us.
