For Paul Griffiths, supporting community is both a personal and professional mission. That’s why Vesta Asset Management, his property management company, focuses on people first. It’s also why he serves on the board of LYRIC, a Bay Area nonprofit that supports LGBTQQ+ youth to thrive. When he first came to First Republic to open savings accounts for his children, he found that the Bank’s people-first philosophy matched his own. Having a dedicated banker for his financial needs helped him grow Vesta into the successful business it is today. Paul continues to expand his business with the backing of a bank that can balance goals with core values.
