Community Bank, headquartered in Pasadena with assets of $3.5 billion was founded in 1945 by brothers, Charlie and Howard Cook. As a financial institution with 17 offices in four counties, Community Bank is one of the oldest and most respected banks in California. The story of Community Bank exemplifies the entrepreneurial business spirit of California when the Cook brothers, came to Southern California in the 1920’s with not much more than their resourcefulness and determination to succeed. Ever resourceful, the brothers began financing equipment for their customers, who, like themselves, were small business owners. Community Bank was the first bank issued a State Charter after World War II. What hasn’t changed is an unwavering dedication to integrity and outstanding service – the values so important to Charlie and Howard when they built their business. These same values still define Community Bank today, and into the future.
