More than 60 years have now passed since a small group of community and business leaders met in April 1957 and voted to establish a home-owned bank in Corvallis. The organizers said they intended to “fill a need for a friendly banking service dedicated to all of the community and to the building of a thriving local economy,” according to an early newspaper report.
From those humble beginnings, Citizens Bank has blossomed to become one of the most successful and stable community banks in the country. Today, Citizens Bank is home to more than 160 customer-focused employees, and their 15 branches provide comprehensive banking services to individuals and businesses in 13 Willamette Valley communities spanning seven Oregon counties.
At Citizens Bank, they believe that their success is directly linked to the overall health of the region they serve. Since 1957, they have committed themselves to improving the communities in which we live, work, and play. They honor that commitment daily by providing a full range of banking services with a personal, hometown touch; by supporting the continued prosperity of local businesses; and by emphasizing honesty, integrity and fairness in their relationships with customers, co-workers, and neighbors. If they cannot offer you the best rates, or loans for you then they will refer you to who can. They believe that their customers come before numbers.
Citizens Banks motto: Good Business. Good Friends.
