North Bay Leadership Council (NBLC) welcomes American River Bank as a new member. American River Bank is a regional bank serving Northern California since 1983. American River Bank is a subsidiary of American River Bankshares, a publicly-traded company.
Patty Garbarino, chair of NBLC and president of Marin Sanitary Services, said, “We are excited to have this regional bank joining our membership because of their commitment to the community and shared values. We look forward to seeing American River Bank grow in the North Bay and become an important contributor to our region’s quality of life.”
American River Bank has been profitable every full year since their founding, which they attribute to their demonstrated history of providing value to clients, shareholders, and employees. American River Bank has 107 total employees across 11 locations and generated $27 million in revenue (USD) in 2019.
As of September 30, 2020, the Company had consolidated assets of $858 million, net loans of $472 million, deposits of $729 million and shareholders’ equity of $92 million. The Bank’s principal office is in Sacramento and the North Bay offices are in Santa Rosa and Healdsburg with plans to increase its presence in the North Bay.
Julianna Graham, SVP Market Manager, is the member representative. Graham has a background in commercial lending, strategic planning, project and sales management, and business development. She is active in the North Bay community serving on nonprofit boards and is a faculty member of Pacific Coast Banking School.
Graham said, “American River Bank is proud to be a part of the North Bay community and North Bay Leadership Council. We are committed to joining with other community leaders to help to make this region more innovative, resilient and prosperous.”
An integral part of American River Bank’s community engagement is the American River Bank Foundation which is committed to supporting organizations that create opportunity, enhance self-esteem, increase awareness about culture and community, and provide physical and emotional well-being for the most vulnerable women and children. The Foundation is solely supported by American River Bank, its employees, clients and partners. They have donated over $1.5 million to local nonprofit organizations since the Foundation was established in 2004.
