Life is a journey. The paths are endless. The destinations, limitless.
With any journey, it's important to know where you've been, where you are, and where you're headed. And when you need it, it's always good to have help along the way.
Bank of the Sierra's journey began in 1977 in the small California town of Porterville. The founders were representatives of their home, and they built their bank with dedication to the community's needs.
In the heart of this great state, full of small town charm and painted walls, nestled amongst giants, we set down our roots and grew with our community, side by side.
Today, Bank of the Sierra is proud to serve communities throughout central California. From the boardroom to the teller counter, we believe in doing more, to make a difference for the people we serve.
We like to help businesses grow. For those who work to be the backbone of our community, we are your strong ally, partner, and guide. And as we grow, we improve our technologies, invest time and resources to help local families save.
And we continue to be good stewards for our shareholders. We're a community bank and our commitment stays the same-- to help make every community we're a part of better.
Every journey has its challenges, but we know that together we can accomplish things today that were unimaginable yesterday. And it all starts with a single step.
