“On behalf of the entire River City Bank team, we are excited to welcome Paul Duncan to the board,” said Shawn Devlin, chairman of the board at River City Bank. “We expect to gain much from his insights and expertise from his years in the Sacramento market and beyond.”

“Under the expert guidance of Steve Fleming and my colleagues on the board of directors, River City Bank has made substantial progress in expanding its presence to new markets and supporting the Sacramento region,” said Paul Duncan, board member at River City Bank. “Growth strategy is a particular passion of mine, and I look forward to leveraging my experience by contributing to River City Bank’s continued success.”
Immediately prior to his appointment to River City Bank’s board of directors, Duncan served for 15 years as Managing Director for Bank of the West. In that role, he successfully implemented a new division focused on government banking and public finance, while also continuing to work with businesses of all sizes on strategic growth and expansion initiatives. Prior to his work with Bank of the West, Duncan worked in various capacities for several of the largest banks in the Sacramento region and nationwide, including Wells Fargo and Bank of America.
