Community West Bank Gets Green Light for Branch in Paso Robles

Community West Bancshares, parent company of Community West Bank, has announced the office of the Comptroller of the Currency approved its application to establish a full-service branch office at 541 Spring St., Paso Robles.

This will be the second branch office in San Luis Obispo County for Community West Bank, which currently has seven full-service branch offices from Westlake Village to San Luis Obispo.

“Since opening our full-service branch in San Luis Obispo in November 2016, we have been planning to expand our presence into north San Luis Obispo County,” said Bill Filippin, executive vice president/CBO.

“We are excited to bring a beautiful new branch office to the corner of 6th and Spring Street, in the heart of Paso Robles. Our new branch office will open next year, in the third or fourth quarter,” he said.

Community West Bank opened a loan production office in Paso Robles in June at 725 Creston Road.

That office’s team of business bankers includes Jason Bietz, senior vice president/regional market manager; Karen Fields Heisinger, vice president/relationship manager; and Julie Richardson Kreowski, vice president/community banking manager.

The new branch office will replace the Paso Robles loan production office.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
