TEMECULA — Temecula Valley Bank is celebrating! The bank kicked off its 10-year anniversary with the introduction of their new logo: blue skies above – green earth beneath – and a growing, changing horizon that reflects the mountains and valleys of their Temecula Valley heritage.
The bank is celebrating its anniversary all year long at each of its 10 locations throughout Southern California. On the tenth of each month, the bank offers visiting customers refreshments; they decorate the offices and have prizes for some lucky patrons.
“We are very proud of our success,” said Stephen H. Wacknitz, chairman, president and CEO. “Our strategic focus continues to be on our core business lines: traditional banking, construction/real estate-based lending and our SBA lending program.”
