Community Icon, BAC Community Bank, Named Among Top 1% Most Extraordinary Banks in U.S.A.

STOCKTON, Calif. – October 26, 2016 – BAC Community Bank, a local Central Valley and East Bay icon, was named among the top 1 percent most extraordinary banks in the United States by The Institute for Extraordinary Banking™.

BAC Community Bank was recognized with the Institute’s Banky® Award for their commitment to strong community banking. This recognition is given to the top 60 out of 6,000 community banks across the country.

“It is truly an honor to be one of two banks in the entire State of California to receive this award,” said Bill Trezza, Chief Executive Officer of BAC Community Bank. “It is gratifying to have an independent panel of professionals recognize BAC for our customer-centric culture, integration of technology into banking services, community focus, and financial stability.”

Dana Bockstahler, BAC’s Chief Operating Officer noted that receiving this award “is a testament to our relying so heavily on the principles that guide every decision we make.”

The Extraordinary Banking™ Awards exist to highlight the vital, yet often overlooked, role that local, community banks play in our economy. Consumers use the Grammys to guide their music purchases, the Emmys lead them to the best of television, and the Tonys highlight outstanding live theater.

And now, consumers have the Banky® Awards as their guide to discovering the very best, most extraordinary banks in their communities, and in the country.

The Banky is the Mark of Excellence for Community Banks. For more information, and to see videos and downloadable photos from the awards, go to
