About Us » History and Philosophy

regional bank

BAC Community Bank (BAC) was founded in Brentwood, California in 1965 and remains East Contra Costa's oldest community bank. The Bank is owned by the Berberian Family, who has lived and operated businesses in California's Central Valley for more than fifty years. Ronald A. Berberian, President and Chairman of the Board is dedicated to providing BAC customers a unique community banking experience that is reflected throughout the daily operation of the Bank.


Formerly known as Bank of Agriculture & Commerce, or simply "BAC" in San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties, and ECC Bank, a division of Bank of Agriculture & Commerce in East Contra Costa county, the Bank's board and management decided a single unified name would be an appropriate change to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary in 2015.


Building on BAC's strong reputation and bringing greater attention to its unique positioning as a full service community bank, management and the Bank's board chose to rename the company as BAC Community Bank.


BAC specializes in providing financial services to local businesses and individuals. Our expertise lies in our ability to offer a full range of banking services to the professional sector, such as physicians, dentists, attorneys, accountants, and other businesses engaged in commercial or industrial activities. We take care of the financial banking needs of the business establishment as well as the personal banking needs of the owners or principals and their employees.


Our branch network stretches through three counties along California's Delta waterways -- San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and east Contra Costa counties -- to serve and support the people and businesses of our communities.
