Beginning in June 2021, all Founders Community Bank and Yosemite Bank banking centers will begin operating under the Premier Valley Bank name. This impacts our customers in San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, Oakhurst, Mariposa, and Groveland. Outside of location signage and bank materials, the disruption for customers should be minimal.
“For the past several years, our banking teams have operated under three brand names across Central California,” explained Lo Nestman, President & CEO of Premier Valley Bank. “We’ve frequently heard from customers about the confusion this has caused. It has also created some operational challenges for our employees. We’ve decided it’s now the right time to unify our brand across all of our California locations.”
Q: Will my local banking center have a different team of bankers?
A: No. The same great team of employees you know at your local Founders Community Bank and Yosemite Bank locations will continue serving you under the Premier Valley Bank name.
Q: Does this name change mean Founders Community Bank and Yosemite Bank have changed ownership and leadership?
A: No. Founders Community Bank and Yosemite Bank have been operating as divisions of Premier Valley Bank. Our local Fresno-based leadership team remains unchanged. Premier Valley Bank also remains a California-charted bank that is owned by Heartland Financial USA, Inc. Heartland Financial USA, Inc. and its family of community banks across the Midwest and Western United States has been named to Forbes list of Best Banks in America for five straight years.
Q: Will my local banking center change its hours due to the name change?
A: No. The hours and services offered at your local banking center will not change. Current hours and services offered are listed on our Locations page.

Q: Will I be getting a new debit/ATM card?
A: No. Your existing debit card will continue to work normally following the name change.
