Our Story

Building better businesses

When veteran bankers Don Griffith and Deborah Marsten conceived the vision for Grandpoint Bank in 2008, it was a challenging time for traditional banking. But they love a challenge. And they know how to marshal the right people and resources around a good idea. They assembled a like-minded team of bankers who love to find fresh, creative ways to put banking to work for clients, help them overcome challenges and grow their companies.

Today, Grandpoint is a $3.4-billion-asset bank. We built it by combining the resources, and talents, of select community banks in southern California, Arizona and southern Washington, each with a well-earned reputation for taking great care of clients. Our size gives us strength beyond a community bank. Our respect for regional distinctions keeps us well tuned to the needs within each of our five regions.

We’ve grown Grandpoint in the same challenging environment our clients face each day. We know what it takes to launch and run a business because we’ve done it ourselves. That's why we go above and beyond to make things work for our clients. We bring good business sense and a collaborative, can-do attitude to every relationship.

We support our clients with a comprehensive platform of financial products and services that addresses their needs today, and adapts with them as they grow. Our clients come to us with complex issues – because we have a proven track record of solving them. We may look like a typical bank, but we always strive to provide value beyond banking, to help our clients build better businesses.
