Strong Teams Deliver Strong Performance
By any measure, our performance in the third quarter was once again excellent. This is a testament to the success of our organic growth initiatives. The investments we’ve made in banking talent are driving consistent loan growth and enhancing our reputation across our footprint. Business development activity is strong across Marin, Sonoma, Napa, the East Bay and San Francisco and we have an extensive pipeline of new opportunities to fuel continued growth.
We have an exceptional team here at the Bank. I am optimistic about the balance of the year as we remain disciplined in our underwriting and keep our focus on building long-term customer relationships based on service and market expertise.
Together, we will continue to execute on our strategic growth plan while adhering to our guiding principles to deliver great results and value for our shareholders through the end of 2019 and beyond.
