Our 44-year story continues with a new name.

On April 1, 2024, Central Valley Community Bancorp and Bank acquired Community West Bancshares and Bank, enlarging our service area and inspiring our new name: Community West Bank. As a result of the merger, we now provide 27 full-service Banking Centers covering Greater Sacramento in the north, throughout the San Joaquin Valley and now, west to the Central Coast.

A Sensible Step Forward

When our story began in 1979 in Clovis, California, our name was – quite aptly – Clovis Community Bank. As we proudly grew to serve clients throughout the San Joaquin Valley and Greater Sacramento regions, our name was changed in 2002 to Central Valley Community Bank.

And now, as this merger brings our culture of relationship banking and client advocacy to the Central Coast, the time is right for a new name that reflects our expanded service area: Community West Bank. The name on the outside of our Banking Centers has changed a few times, but never the values on the inside.

A Name That Tells Our Expanded Story

Beginning April 1, 2024, our new Community West Bank branding will be appearing on our website, and on Banking Centers from Sacramento to Bakersfield throughout the summer. Our new name is perfectly aligned with our mission, while furthering the promise of Community West Bank's legacy, vision and commitment to employees, clients and community.

Paso Robles
San Luis Obispo
