Bank of Marin has called the Greater Sacramento region home for a year, but its connection to the community is rooted in a rich, nearly 40-year history. The Bank—which entered the region in 2021 after merging with American River Bank—is continuing to build on its long-standing tradition of investing in the communities it serves through customer-centric banking practices, responsible lending, and philanthropic giving.
“Relationship banking is at our core,” says Tim Myers, Bank of Marin president and CEO. “Our dedicated, dynamic, and experienced teams that live and work in Sacramento, Placer, and Amador counties are involved in the communities we serve, and understand the local demands, unique business needs, and how to best help our customers reach their financial goals.”

Bank of Marin Retail Banking Regional Manager Lisa Cisneros says the team’s experience in the market, combined with extensive product knowledge, allows them to leverage solutions that support clients’ success. “Recently one of our clients had a time-sensitive business opportunity and was pleasantly surprised to learn they could use funds from a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) to accomplish their goals. We were glad to not only educate them about HELOCs, but also help them through every step of the application process.”
In addition to providing financial resources for local businesses to grow and thrive, Bank of Marin strengthens the community by giving back through volunteerism, nonprofit board leadership, and financial contributions. Employees dedicate thousands of hours annually to serving their communities and the Bank has donated more than $500,000 to nonprofits across Northern California, including many in the Greater Sacramento region.
“Being part of the community means more than just doing business here,” Myers says. “It means embedding ourselves in the community and becoming active in its philanthropic landscape. I am proud of the Bank’s and our employees’ support of local nonprofits that provide basic necessities and enrichment programs in the community.”
