Community Bank was founded in 1955 by a group of Joseph, Oregon business leaders as the Bank of Wallowa County. The bank remained relatively unchanged until 1991 when a new ownership group purchased the bank.
Since then, we have been very active in our expansion effort and have grown to 14 branches in Eastern Oregon (11) and Southeastern Washington (3). We also operate a Loan Production Office in the Columbia River Gorge located in The Dalles.
Our dedication to our communities, and willingness to provide the highest quality of customer service, are two reasons we continue to grow and be successful. It has also created unique advancement opportunities for each and every staff member who is willing to make a commitment to ensuring that Community Bank is the premier financial institution in our service areas. Our staff members pride themselves on offering unsurpassed professionalism, premier customer service and are committed to the prosperity of our communities.
Unlike our competitors, we continue to control our own destiny. Community Bank employees, officers and directors own the vast majority of our outstanding stock and we are dedicated to remaining locally owned and operated.
Currently Community Bank employs over 130 bankers throughout Eastern Oregon and Southeastern Washington.
