Ventura Community Bank, a division of Ojai Community Bank, announced today that it will be moving its offices to a new location in downtown Ventura during the first quarter of 2016. The Bank has entered into a lease at 89 S. California St. subject to regulatory approval.
“The downtown location is a perfect location in the heart of Ventura with easy freeway access and access to our business community,” Dave Brubaker, President/CEO commented. “We love downtown and are looking forward to becoming a larger part of its success as we continue to serve our community.”
At a time when larger banks are removing lenders from branch locations, Ventura is beefing up its lending services by providing lenders in the actual branch location. “
“People need to talk to people, not computers or call centers. We pride ourselves in always answering the phone, knowing your name and willing to assist you however we can.” continues Brubaker. “We’re old school with hands-on customer service, but have the technology that banking customers need.”
“We’re a hometown bank, most of the staff has grown up here, and we look forward to our friends and family visiting,” added Brubaker. “We want to make a difference in the lives of our customers and look forward to spreading our good works to others.”
