President’s Message

Thank You for Visiting Bank of the Sierra.

We hope that as you learn more about Bank of the Sierra you’ll understand our commitment to community, which is exemplified in our brand promise: “We will help make every community that we’re part of better.” Every aspect of what we do as a bank supports this one goal. You can see our commitment whenever you visit any one of our branches or use our services to bank online. We strive to treat each and every one of our customers with the attention and respect of one community member to another, regardless of how they bank with us.

Bank of the Sierra is a community bank with today’s best technology in place to make banking simpler and more intuitive. These services include free online banking and mobile banking, including mobile check deposit. Whether you are completing a banking transaction on your mobile device or in one of our branches, we want you to have an exceptional experience.

More than anything, we are proud of our commitment to people. I encourage you to explore the number of ways our bank and our employees give to the surrounding communities, whether through the Sierra Grant Program or through individuals volunteering their time and financial expertise.

Essentially, we believe that it is important to “Keep Climbing,” which reveals another aspect of who we are and what we do. Success is something that must be earned each day through self-discipline, challenge, and striving for excellence. Our heritage is rooted in community banking, and our commitment to that legacy is unwavering as we keep moving forward.

We welcome you and look forward to working with you toward your financial success.
