Who We Are

Pacific West Bank started in 2004 after local business owners wanted more from their banks. They had a simple idea, banking should be a client focused experience and Banking on Relationships was developed. From the first day our doors opened in West Linn, this idea has been our foundation and evident in everything we do, banking is about our clients. We always have and always will focus on doing what is right for our clients. Why? Because we are invested in the success of our Greater Portland Area and the businesses, nonprofits, and people that make it unique.
