In 1953, in a town called Canyonville, Oregon, USA, due to the inconveniences that the employees of a small timber business faced when trying to cash their paycheck, the citizens of Canyonville opened a bank for themselves. Before that, this small town had erected a grocery store, a school, a church, and finally, it was time to build a bank.
Umpqua bank is a subsidiary of the Umpqua holding corporation. It is tough to find an organization that has expanded over the years, yet they still remember and abide by their values. Umpqua bank is a good example. Because they were first opened as a community bank, their services were concentrated on getting to know their customers rather than being driven by the largeness of a customer’s account.

They prioritize giving financial advice to their customers and take care to learn and help their customers to manage their money.
