LAB Lets Latino Entertainers Focus on Passions


You won't find microscopes and test tubes at the Business Management LAB—the LAB stands for Louis and Angie Barajas. But their approach to their work is as meticulous as any scientist.

The business management firm offers comprehensive services to Latino entertainers and entrepreneurs. Louis realized his clients were not being served by any of the banks they used. Something had to change.

“There's got to be someone that's the best in entertainment banking,” he thought.

The husband-and-wife team met Ana Perez, vice president and relationship manager for our Entertainment Division. A collaboration was born!

Income for those in the entertainment industry can vary wildly from year to year or project to project. Bankers like Perez understand financial statements, contracts and royalties. The couple praises Perez for stepping up to save a client's Madison Square Garden show with a last-minute wire transfer.
