When we put people first, families grow stronger, businesses thrive, and our communities flourish.
Established in 1998 in Medford, Oregon, People’s Bank of Commerce was formed to provide a community business bank for the southern Oregon area. During the past 25 years, People’s Bank has grown its community banking footprint to Ashland, Central Point, Grants Pass, Jacksonville, and Klamath Falls. In early 2021, the bank expanded into the Willamette Valley with the merger of Willamette Community Bank, adding branches in Lebanon, Albany, and Salem. We are excited to add Eugene to our community banking footprint.
The bank also owns Steelhead Finance, an accounts receivable factoring company headquartered in Medford. Steelhead supports the transportation industry throughout the United States by providing cash flow and backroom management services to carriers and freight brokers.
Since its inception, People's Bank has provided its customers with superior, responsive service. Through conservative solid banking fundamentals and doing right by its customers, employees, and community, People's Bank has prospered financially and has remained well-capitalized and well-positioned for growth, even during economic downturns. It has earned an esteemed reputation as one of the top community banks in Oregon and prides itself in its steadfast commitment to its community, which helps businesses prosper and the local economy strengthen.
People’s Bank, we put people first.
