Through its 31 branches and nearly 350 employees across Northern California, Bank of Marin has always encouraged and promoted diversity in the workforce. Today, more than half of the executive leadership team are women, including the chief financial officer, chief credit officer, and commercial and retail banking heads, as well as the corporate secretary and the marketing director. What’s even more exciting is that many of these roles are not traditionally held by women.
“Our recent merger with American River Bank provided us with an expanded team of talented bankers to deliver exceptional service to our customers across Northern California,” says Tim Myers, president and CEO. “We place a high value on the collaboration and innovation that a diverse workforce promotes, and women leaders have always contributed greatly to Bank of Marin’s success.”

Among senior management, 63 percent are women and 56 percent of department heads are women, with positions at the vice president, senior vice president or executive vice president level. They are experts who are committed to their team, their clients and each other. On average, the women have been with Bank of Marin for eight years, many with decades of experience in their fields.
According to Tani Girton, EVP, chief financial officer and board member of Professional Business Women of California, “The Bank’s commitment to diverse leadership is demonstrated by the number of women and other diverse leaders in our company. By continuing to promote and develop diversity in our workforce, we will see more growth and success for the Bank in the years to come.”
