New bank in Paso Robles now open 

–American Riviera Bank announced that its new full-service branch in Paso Robles opened for business on Feb. 26, 2018.

The new branch, located at 1601 Spring Street, is American Riviera Bank’s first full-service bank branch in San Luis Obispo County. The bank building was vacant when American Riviera Bank purchased it in the fall of 2017. The conveniently located new branch occupies 4,957 square feet, features a large parking lot for customers, a drive-up teller and an ATM. American Riviera Bank fully renovated the property’s interior and exterior to bring customers the best experience and service possible. In addition to serving customers with personal accounts, the new branch offers business, commercial real estate, agricultural, residential mortgage, construction and Small Business Administration loans with an experienced loan team at the helm.

American Riviera Bank had been operating from a loan production office headed by Neil Amarante, SVP/Regional Credit Manager with Ann Hansen, VP/Commercial & Ag Banking Officer; Paul Tognazzini, Community Relationship Officer; Tyler Flesner, AVP/Senior Credit Analyst; Emily Brush, Credit Assistant and Nancy Enholm, Residential Loan Processor. The loan production team has now moved to the new branch on Spring Street where they join Heidi Cummings, VP/Branch Manager and her experienced staff made up of Kirsten Goodwin, Michelle Brewster and Cindy Brennan. American Riviera Bank expects to open more branches between Goleta and Paso Robles in the future, offering customers new and expanded banking options as well as providing additional local employment opportunities.

American Riviera Bank is a full-service community bank focused on serving the lending and deposit needs of businesses and consumers on the Central Coast. The state-chartered bank opened for business on July 18, 2006 with the support of local shareholders. Existing branches in Santa Barbara County are located at 1033 Anacapa Street in Santa Barbara, 525 San Ysidro Road in Montecito, and 5880 Calle Real in Goleta. Please visit
