Show Notes

AJ Moyer is the CEO of C3 Bank in sunny San Diego, California.  Mr. Moyer alternates with ease from the mindset of a macroeconomist to that of a regional banking manager intimately familiar to the pulse of a fickle local economy and unpredictable macro-conditions.  Like a surfer who has taken down gnarly waves in Fiji, Costa Rica and Western Samoa, he is clear on his mindset’s focus and by extension C3 bank's footprint in North San Diego and Southern California. He knows how to ride the ebbs and flows.

AJ Moyer's cautious optimism is aligned with leading national economic indicators.  2021 Q1 National unemployment statistics are down and jobs are up; average hourly earnings are up; and real gross domestic product (GDP) has increased.  All indicators including consumption, investment and interest rates point to an ongoing recovering market and economy.  There is an absolute inverse correlation between diminishing COVID-19 statistics and the collective economic fortunes of all. 

"That's how we operate our business, with cautious optimism.  So, we are prepared for any type of scenario." -  AJ Moyer, CEO C3 Bank and global surfer
