Leaving a Legacy: Celebrating Russ Colombo’s Bank of Marin Career and Retirement
After 15 years as CEO of Bank of Marin, and a distinguished career in financial services, Russ Colombo is retiring on Oct. 31. Tim Myers, currently President and Chief Operating Officer, will become CEO on November 1.
Born and raised in Marin and a proud San Rafael High School graduate, Russ has embodied the values of Bank of Marin especially during the challenging times of the pandemic. His dedication to providing legendary service to customers, giving back to the community, and supporting employees have been his hallmark.
With Russ at the helm, Bank of Marin has become a leading business and community bank in Northern California, growing assets to more than $4 billion through local relationship building and four strategic acquisitions. Today, Bank of Marin operates in 10 counties with 31 branches across the Bay Area, Greater Sacramento, and Amador County.
As Russ transitions out of his day-to-day CEO role to join the Bank of Marin board, he provided this endorsement. “I couldn’t be more delighted that Tim has been named my successor. Consistent leadership is more important than ever, and Tim has been an integral member of the management team at Bank of Marin for many years. Most recently, he has proven his ability to lead in an ever-changing environment.”
When asked what he will do next, Russ shared his desire to travel, golf, get out on his bike and spend time with his grandchildren who live in Marin. You can expect him to continue volunteering with local organizations and be out and about in the community. “I know I am leaving Bank of Marin in great shape and in great hands. I am grateful for the opportunity to have led this wonderful organization.”
Thank you, Russ, for all that you have done for Bank of Marin and the communities we serve. We wish you all the best!
