River City Bank Announces Changes to the Board of Directors

SACRAMENTO, CA -River City Bank announces changes to the Board of Directors that were effective April 24, 2024. Paul Duncan, a board member since 2021, retired from the Board as he is relocating out of California. Duncan, a retired bank executive, joined the Board in 2021 and brought extensive government, commercial, and investment banking strategy and experience to the River City Bank Board.

“As someone who has worked extensively in the field of commercial banking, Paul brought a wealth of relevant knowledge to the Board. We will miss Paul and wish him all the best with his move,” said Steve Fleming, President and CEO of River City Bank.

Eric Johnson, a technology strategist and adjunct lecturer for UC Davis, is joining the Board.
