Notes from the CEO
New Year, New Opportunities
I really enjoy the start of a new year. Thinking of all the great things that are yet to be accomplished really brings out the optimist in me. Now a couple of weeks in, we are off and running at Five Star Bank and I hope you too are enjoying all the great opportunities a new year brings.
We’ve many goals for 2012. Many of which are based on the positive momentum we gained last year. This includes further growing SBA lending programs as well as growing the recently revamped home mortgage department. Commercial real estate, small business banking, faith-based banking, and emerging business banking will all be focused on as well. We also look forward to completing our first year with a full branch in Elk Grove.
We also are excited to expand our relationships with the many civic and business groups with which we have formed a partnership. With organizations like Valley Vision, SARTA, ACRE, SACTO, and all of the regional Chambers of Commerce, among others, we hope to strengthen bonds and work together to ensure economic prosperity in the region.
I’m proud to say that our clients and partners are the best in business. Serving our customers is really a pleasure and we take great pride in helping them achieve their goals. What goals do you have in 2012? If we can help you get there in 2012, come see us. Let’s go!
