Bank of Sierra opens California Avenue branch in Bakersfield

Bank of Sierra opens California Avenue branch in Bakersfield

Bank of the Sierra opened its newest Bakersfield branch late last month at 4456 California Ave. The bank designed the new location from the ground up, to better suit the needs of the local residents and businesses in this busy area.

As Bank of the Sierra’s fourth location in Bakersfield, this newly constructed 6,000 square foot building offers a spacious lobby and features a drive-up window, a walk-up and a drive-up ATM, as well as a lending platform for commercial lenders.

“Bakersfield is one of the Bank’s major markets and we were fortunate to secure such a great location along one of the city’s busiest thoroughfares,” said Kevin McPhaill, president and CEO of Bank of the Sierra. “This location has all the attributes our previous California Avenue location lacked: convenient ingress and egress, drive-up banking, superior visibility and great parking.”

Since its founding in 1977, Bank of the Sierra has grown to become the largest independent bank in the southern San Joaquin Valley, with approximately $2 billion in assets. Bank of the Sierra offers a full range of retail and commercial banking services via 34 full-service branches located throughout California’s southern San Joaquin Valley and neighboring communities, on the Central Coast, and in southern California locations including the Santa Clara Valley.

“We anticipate the new location will greatly improve the customer experience, one of the key elements evaluated in our branch expansion strategy,” McPhaill said.
