It all began in 1972 when legendary radio and television entrepreneur Jon S. Kelly perceived the need for a strong and locally-owned bank to serve the Sacramento region. So he created one. With passion, persistence, and purpose, River City Bank was open for business in 1973. Kelly’s entrepreneurial vision and keen appreciation of unmet bank customer needs led to numerous innovations, including the introduction of Saturday banking and a branch office with eight drive-through lanes to speed service—the largest of its kind in the state. Virtually every innovation was met with brilliant success and growth.
The story of River City Bank begins with a singular focus on redefining the banking experience and exceeding our customers’ expectations. It’s a theme that resonates throughout every chapter in our history.
