In 1971 the Bank of the Pacific was formed. Eight years later The Bank of Grays Harbor in Aberdeen Washington was created by a group of local business people who shared many of the same values and vision as the earlier group. Their goal was to provide great personal service, be able to make decisions locally, be very active and supportive in their communities. Year after year the number of local businesses and families they served grew because the banks provided them with knowledgeable financial solutions. Then, just before the beginning of the new millennium in late 1999, a merger of equals was formed between the two banks. Again in 2004 they grew when Bank Northwest, based in Bellingham, became part of Bank of the Pacific family.
Today, Bank of the Pacific has achieved many of its original goals and mission, “To be the best bank for our employees, customers, investors and communities”. There are seventeen branch locations in Western Washington and Northern Oregon. The words, “neighbor and hometown” are not just words to everyone at the bank. They are the cornerstones of a committed and proud tradition. The bank has genuine care and concern for their employees, they are worth much more than the hours they work and their customers are also worth much more than the size of their accounts. Being the most knowledgeable and trusted in all of the communities the bank serves, are the hallmarks of their success. Bank of the Pacific’s financial expertise and human concern makes a real impact every day in the lives of the businesses and individuals we serve.
