Outlook 2018: Committed to Organic Growth
By any measure, 2017 was a productive year here at Bank of Marin.
The investments we made in organic growth, in our staff and in the acquisition of Bank of Napa – all while continuing to deliver strong financial results – position us very well for 2018.
While we will continue to evaluate strategic M&A opportunities that fit with our culture and add value for our shareholders, our primary focus for the coming year will be organic growth and completing the integration of the Bank of Napa.
We expect that with the recently passed tax reform, many businesses will be investing in growth and we look forward to supporting their plans. As we continue to serve customers across a wide range of industry sectors, from manufacturers and distributors to professional services and non- profits, we will remain focused on the relationship banking model that has served us well for 28 years.
With our ever-growing footprint in the Bay Area, the strength of our team, and the many opportunities we have to enhance the value of our bank, I am very excited about what can be accomplished in 2018.
