A Legacy Built on Relationship Banking
Bank of Marin celebrated its 30th anniversary on January 23rd. I am very proud of the progress we’ve made and the success we’ve had over the last three decades. The Bank’s full-year 2019 results continue a long-term upward earnings trend and reflect the ongoing commitment to the relationship banking model first established by our founders.
In 2019, we also successfully executed on our organic growth initiatives, including a new loan production office in Walnut Creek and expansion of our presence in San Francisco. We made significant progress in staffing across our markets, which should help us deliver continued strong performance in the coming year.
Looking ahead, low unemployment in the Bay Area will be a key driver for ongoing economic activity and opportunities for loan growth. This creates substantial momentum for local businesses and for the Bank.
All of the hard work our teams accomplished in 2019 positions us well for growth in 2020 and the next 30 years.
