We are committed to the markets we serve and committed to providing a responsive, personalized alternative to the big banks that dominate our industry today. Our directors and staff continue to look for opportunities in the communities near our existing branches to bring good “old-fashioned” banking. We're proud that in the age of mergers and buyouts, Oak Valley Community Bank remains locally and independently owned and we're committed to staying that way. To some banks, maybe that's no big deal, but to the team of professionals at Oak Valley Community Bank, it's what local banking is all about.
