We are your neighbor and local partner with smarter banking solutions
Almost four decades ago a small group of local businessmen in Long Beach, Washington came together to create a bank that would focus on the community. In 1971 the Bank of the
Pacific was formed. Eight years later The Bank of Grays Harbor in Aberdeen Washington was created by a group of local business people who shared many of the same values and vision as the earlier group. Their goal was to provide great personal service, be able to make decisions locally, be very active and supportive in their communities. Year after year the number of local businesses and families they served grew because the banks provided them with knowledgeable financial solutions. Then, in late 1999 a merger of equals was formed between the two banks. Again in 2004 they grew when Bank Northwest, based in Bellingham became part of the Bank of the Pacific family.
Today, Bank of the Pacific has achieved many of its original goals and mission, “To be the best bank for our employees, customers, investors and communities”. There are nineteen branch locations in Western Washington and Northern Oregon. The words, “neighbor and hometown” are not just words to everyone at the bank. They are the cornerstones of a committed and proud tradition. The bank has genuine care and concern for their employees as they are worth much more than the hours they work. By the same respect, their customers are also worth much more than the size of their accounts. Bank of the Pacific’s financial expertise and concern for our communities make a real impact in the lives of the families and businesses they serve.
As the Bank continues to grow and build its brand value it must stay true to its pillars through providing smart solutions with personal service. This will mean maintaining a balance between expanding technologies and continuing to nurture the deep-rooted personal connections for which they are known. This balanced approach will allow the Bank to expand its market share and increase profitability without sacrificing its heritage or mission to be the best bank for their employees, customers and communities.
