Columbia Bank

Past, present and community.

We started out in 1993 as a community bank. And while our community has grown and our computers have shrunk, we are still the same bank that puts people first.

Columbia Bank is a Northwest community bank headquartered in Tacoma, Washington, with comprehensive solutions and expertise to meet the evolving needs of businesses and individuals.

Growth is vital to remaining a preferred option for customers. It advances the services and expertise we provide on their behalf. Columbia Bank has grown both organically and through acquisition, in cases where we recognized the benefits of a strong fiscal and cultural fit. In the process, we've leveraged our community-minded, locally committed way of doing business from a single branch to a 150+ branch regional footprint throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho.

Today we employ a wide range of extraordinarily smart and devoted people, delivering relationship-based customer service. Most important, we've maintained our dedication to being THE community bank in each and every community we serve.

Our people truly do make the difference.
