So, to see yourself seven stories high on Times Square is a thrill that I never expected to experience, but Monday August 19th it came true! There I was just like the male underwear model but so much older! But seriously what an experience and the story is so much more that my selfish grandeur.

Riverview Community Bank has been servicing customers in the Portland/Vancouver Metro for over 95 years and has been publicly traded on the NASDAQ for over 20. Now there is a story that only a few companies can tell! (Proud to mention one of this small club is Ford Motor Company). Longevity like that comes from a firm commitment to not just providing competitive and quality services but a firm commitment to the communities they serve. Today, that tradition continues. Of the over 250 employees at Riverview Community Bank, 69 have positions on local community service and non-profit boards. More than 2% of their budget is targeted to sponsorships and good works in the Portland-Vancouver Metro and they have also been honored as one of the Most Philanthropic Businesses in the area.

So, on Monday, August 19th Riverview Community Bank was invited to ring the Opening Bell at NASDAQ (you can view on Nasdaq Live) and as a member of their Board of Directors, I was truly blessed to have the honor to join members of the Riverview team to participate in this once in a lifetime event! Community Banks are an endangered species in our country and I'm so happy this recognition was given to my friends at Riverview. They are a great group and my relationship with this bank began with just one great banker who cared about our business as much as we do (that does not happen with the big banks). Thank you, Casey Ryan!
