Corporate Profile

COMMUNITY WEST BANK, a subsidiary of Community West Bancshares, was founded in 1989 with a focus on three core competencies: Relationship Banking, Mortgage Lending and SBA Lending. Keeping credit and other banking decisions local is the key to Community West Bank’s success.

With branch offices in Santa Maria, Goleta, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Westlake Village the Relationship Banking division offers a full range of business and consumer loan and deposit products. Small to medium sized businesses, professional firms and individual clients can choose to bank at one of the branch offices, through online banking, or by use of convenient courier services.

The Bank’s Mortgage Lending division originates residential real estate loans throughout the tri-counties and in the expanding markets in and around Sacramento. The Mortgage Banking division also has an established manufactured housing financing program to assist with affordable housing primarily in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.

Community West Bank is one of the nation’s premier Small Business Administration (SBA) lenders offering government guaranteed loans. As a nationally preferred lender the Bank gains a competitive advantage allowing it to expedite loan processing and have more decision authority than a non-preferred lender.

A key strength of Community West Bank is the people. The Board of Directors is comprised of some of the most experienced business people in the marketplace. The employees are experienced, dedicated and committed to serving the community. It is through their efforts that the Bank’s mission of "serving a diverse customer base by providing extraordinary service and competitive banking products," is carried out.
