Umpqua Bank was founded in 1953 in Oregon to serve the timber industry communities. In 2004 they expanded into Northern California as they saw an opportunity to serve communities with similar needs. Since that time, Umpqua Bank has grown to 191 locations with over 70 in California. Community Banking is their core culture. With assets at approximately $11 billion and a Capital Ratio of 17%, Umpqua Bank is one of the most financially sound Community Banks in the Pacific Northwest.
What makes Umpqua a community bank is its culture and unique brand. This is reflected in their employee’s involvement in their communities. As examples, Monique Krafft and Linda Maeding, both based in Auburn, are involved with various non-profits and service organizations including Soroptimist, Auburn Chamber of Commerce, Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital Foundation, and Rotary. They do this as they both have a passion to serve the community that they have lived in for over 30 years. Umpqua pays each of its employees to volunteer their time at local organizations during work hours through a program called Connect. Umpqua’s corporate leadership has shown their commitment to the Auburn Community through multiple donations and sponsorships to service clubs and local events.
Umpqua Bank reaches out to businesses and individuals by meeting their banking needs with tailored consideration. This results in better service and products for all customers in the local community. Umpqua Bank continually expands their spectrum of services to meet the ever changing needs of the financial industry. These services include the basic retail needs such as checking, savings, and investments. Beyond those basics, additional services include International Banking, Capital Markets Division and Private Banking. Umpqua has an expansive lending division which includes mortgages, businesses and Government lending programs.
