The Deposit Growth Contest continues. A prize will be given for most deposits in both the consumer and the business categories as a way of allowing each branch to be more aware of their capacity for growth, while encouraging a little good-natured competition at the same time. The results are in for the current month. Congratulations to the winners! Each of the winning branches will each be rewarded with a branch-wide lunch. When you have the lunch, SEND MARKETING YOUR PICTURES. One representative from each winning branch must contact Marketing to coordinate claiming the prize! Thanks for your efforts, everyone, and Keep Climbing!

You Ar e A Star !
Santa Paula - Main Staff I witnessed all of the Santa Paula Main Office staff go above and beyond with helping all of the new Ojai Bank customers. They have been dealing with numerous complaints from debit cards not working, wrong check information printed, online banking not working etc... The SPMain staff has helped each and every one of them by giving great Customer Service, and helped put them at ease. Not to mention the SP Main office is short staffed because they have volunteered to help at the new branches. Bravo to the Santa Paula Main staff! -Angelica Zamora
