About Us

Our Beginnings
In 2004, a group of local business leaders joined together with a shared vision for our community. All too familiar with the changing impersonal face of banking, they saw the opportunity for and increasing need in our community for a more intimate bank. A bank that focuses on the specific needs of local neighborhood businesses and the families they serve. And a bank that treats customers not as a number, yet with a highly personalized, professional and courteous approach.

The leaders utilized their combined experience in banking, finance and business, and borne from their vision came Pacific West Bank. Established and headquartered in West Linn, Pacific West Bank fulfills an essential local need, giving rise to a new concept in true community banking.

The Bank Organizers, Directors and Staff live in and raise families in the surrounding neighborhoods. We volunteer time and energies to worthwhile area causes and forge lifelong bonds with the residents, businesses, schools and organizations that are the lifeblood of our communities. We are invested in our neighborhoods as well as in the success of our Bank. Yet more importantly, we are invested in the financial success of our customers and clients.


Our Philosophy
Our slogan, Banking on Relationships, sums up in three words our uncommon approach. We are about getting to know you, your needs, your future financial goals and aspirations, and working together towards those goals. We are about greeting you by name when you walk into our branch and having a cup of coffee together to get caught up. We are about building a long-term banking relationship based on your needs, interests and trust. If this sounds more appealing than a bank merely interested in saying next! at the teller line or selling you the product of the month let's talk.
