Mission Valley Bank
Mission Valley Bank opened for business in July 2001. At the time, a long series of mergers and acquisitions among banks in California’s San Fernando Valley had resulted in declining service and a lack of access to credit. In response, a group of local business and community organizers came together to form the first new independent bank in the region in over four years. Since then, Mission Valley has become a critical resource for the community with a focus on promoting small business development and entrepreneurship.
