True to its mission as a community bank, Summit State Bank is dedicated to serving and giving back to our customers and community by delivering the best service and solutions available. Our Summit Way Service Standards details the commitment we make to each other, our customers and community.

When the Bank opened its doors in 1982, its name was Summit Savings and Loan Association and chartered as a savings and loan. Today the Bank is a commercial bank with $1.1 B in assets, five branch locations, and more than 116 employees. In 2006, Summit State Bank became a publicly traded company on NASDAQ and is recognized by the symbol SSBI.

Like all community banks, it is our corporate responsibility to give back to the community in which we serve. The Bank delivers on that unwavering commitment annually. In 2009, the Bank introduced to the community the Nonprofit Partner Program, whereby local nonprofits earn an above market interest rate on their operating account. Since its inception, the program has paid over $3.5 M to local nonprofits. “We are proud to be able to offer this unique program to support the volunteer efforts of so many important community nonprofits that provide vital services to our community,” states Jim Brush, Chairman of the Board.

Today more than ever, we remain committed to the original mission that the Bank remains committed to the community and is among the top performing community banks in our service area – Sonoma County. Through the engagement of our team, we have received many esteemed awards including Best Business Bank and Best Place to Work in the North Bay, by local media sources the North Bay Business Journal and Northbay biz magazine. We have also been named a Super Premier Performance Bank by Findley Reports, Top Community Philanthropy Loan Producer, and Raymond James Bankers Cup. We are grateful to our customers, businesses and nonprofits for their continued support of Summit State Bank, which allows us to give back to the community in which we all live, work and play. Building a Better Sonoma County, That’s Our Business.
