Who we are and what we do.
Elsewhere Bank, a subsidiary of Elsewhere Bancorp, is a progressive Northern California bank that combines traditional deposit and lending services with innovative banking solutions.
Founded in 1990 by five guys with a dream, Elsewhere Bank is California state-chartered with 14 branches in 11 cities including Anderson, Chico, Colusa, Corning, Magalia, Marysville, Oroville, Paradise, Red Bluff, Redding and Yuba City.
Our status as a Small Business Administration (SBA) Preferred Lender coupled with our position as a top-ranked USDA Business & Industry Lender makes us the #1 choice for business and commercial financing. Elsewhere Bank also operates a progressive cash management department, a real estate loan division and an investment center.
From Community Workshops to complex construction loans, Elsewhere Bank’s mix of traditional and progressive financial services is second to none in the markets we serve.
We mean what we say.
In every work environment, management will talk about doing your best, the work ethic, and being more productive. These edicts are just that: edicts. They cannot be more than that, unless there is a true belief system at the center of the company’s philosophy.
Here at Elsewhere Bank we have a very definite belief system and a very definite vision of what we are and will continue to be.
Our vision is simply this:
Our bank has a mission to continue to achieve the highest standards of performance and personal belief in what we do. We will develop and enhance our products and services, promote quality and expertise, and empower our employees to accomplish these goals. We are, and will continue to be, known for our integrity and commitment.
This is our belief system. It is our expectation that everyone will personally adopt this vision as their work ethic here at Elsewhere Bank. We accept the challenge to share this vision and have this attitude in everything we do.
We will, at times, fall short of achieving all that we want to accomplish individually and as a team, and there will be days when we will not have performed our best. These times will not deter us from believing in ourselves, our bank, and what we represent. Some may think this commitment is just words or rhetoric – it is not. It is why we started this bank and it is the reason we are successful, and is the very core of our dream.
Every time we address a customer or confront a situation, this belief and this vision must be the basis of why and how we act and proceed. Our collective time and effort in our work environment, with a strong belief in this vision, will represent Elsewhere Bank as the very best a community bank can be. Let us all strive to take every opportunity to prove it.
Every prospective employee is given a copy of this statement before they are hired. They are informed so they can commit 100% to this vision and feel a part of the team for our common goal. The strength of this belief and commitment keeps every one at Elsewhere Bank consistent with this mission.
