“Collective resilience and support are the driving forces behind commercial success in the North Bay, and our growing team is already deeply rooted in the local landscape,” said Steve Fleming, President and CEO of River City Bank. “We are pleased to welcome Seth to our team, and we look forward to strengthening our ties in the region as a result of his community oriented and client-first mentality.”
“The most important part of the banking experience, whether you’re working with an individual or a business, is the relationship, and that personal approach is the River City Bank team’s greatest strength,” said Seth Shorett, Vice President and Senior Portfolio Manager for the North Bay at River City Bank. “As a longtime resident of the North Bay, I’m excited to help drive investment in our communities and produce growth for local businesses in all sectors.”
As SVP, Relationship Manager with Heritage Bank of Commerce, Shorett managed commercial accounts and underwriting across the portfolio, including C&I, CRE, construction, non-profit and asset-based lending.

Heritage Bank’s acquisition of Presidio Bank was finalized in 2019.
Born and raised in San Bernardino, Shorett graduated with Highest Honors with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

He lives in Novato with his wife and two children, where he sits on the boards of North Marin Community Services, the Novato Chamber and Marin Builders Association.
