For more than three decades , American River Bank ( ARB ) partnered with the Greater Sacramento business community to meet their banking needs . In August , Bank of Marin acquired ARB , bringing together two exceptional community banks to expand their footprint and better serve their clients throughout Northern California .

While the name has changed , local banking teams remain in place to serve the unique needs of their communities . Additionally , former ARB board members and Sacramento natives Chet Fite and Nic Anderson have joined the Bank of Marin board of directors , continuing to
represent the perspectives of the Greater Sacramento region .
Combined , ARB and Bank of Marin can offer an even greater range of products and services and expanded lending capabilities . “ We ’ re already demonstrating that we can continue to deliver high-touch client service , develop long-standing relationships and give back to the communities we serve on a larger scale ,” Fite says . “ We are well positioned to support and grow with businesses in the region as the economy emerges from the pandemic .”
Both relationship-based banks are known for responsive , personalized service , which continued throughout the pandemic . Clients continued to rely on bank employees to serve as trusted advisors and received one-on-one assistance when applying for PPP loans and needs-based loan modifications .
ARB and Bank of Marin have longstanding histories of generous support within their communities . Between sponsorships and donations , they contribute more than $ 1 million and volunteer thousands of hours each year . Together , they are committed to continuing this support to help their communities grow economically and socially .

We are proud to join forces and provide the same excellent service
to the communities that know and rely upon us for their
banking needs . We will continue to implement our relationship-based approach as well as supporting local organizations and their causes . Together , we ’ ll make banking even better .
— TIM MYERS
PRESIDENT AND CEO
