Today’s post is by guest blogger, Marilyn LaSalle, from the City of Patterson.
Persevering through the Great Depression of 1929, World War II, the oil crash of the early 80’s and the recent Great Recession, Patterson State Bank has earned the well-deserved recognition as a cornerstone of strength and stability in the banking industry, and has operated successfully for four generations. In addition, PSB has been a local pioneer of technology by being first to offer ATMs in 1978 and Internet banking twenty years later in 1998.
Today, with assets totaling $217 million, they are still proud to be considered a small community bank, offering personal service when making loans; and where long-time and prospective customers are still welcomed to their offices as their founders did 90 years ago. Partnering traditions of the past with today’s great service is what PSB does best, as they ended last year with their highest net income in the bank’s history; and once again earned Bauer’s best 5 star rating.
President Pete Lipari and Chairman Bill Marin, pledge that PSB will continue to be trailblazers in banking technologies. PSB online, mobile and tablet banking are great examples of current technology trends, as well as online loan applications on its website. They are also rolling out PSB credit cards with EMV chip technology for the highest standard of protection, and supporting with ApplePay smartphone payment system. Honoring the past; while embracing the future, is the trademark of Patterson State Bank.
