A Story of Continued Growth
As employees, shareholders, and clients of Pacific Premier Bank, 2019 is a year to be proud of. This week, Pacific Premier released its 2019 Annual Report, serving as a testament to our consistently strong growth, collaborative and efficient company culture, and continued support for the communities where we work, do business, and live.
In 2019, Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc. demonstrated once again why it has been consistently recognized as a high-performing institution—ranking #3 on Forbes’ 2020 list of America’s Best Bank, up from #11 the previous year and consistently receiving a 5-star rating from BauerFinancial, now for 55 consecutive quarters.
Our employees are the heart of the company. At the forefront of the Pacific Premier company culture are our five Success Attributes—Achieve, Communicate, Improve, Integrity, and Urgency—which drive how we operate the company and interact with each other.
Pacific Premier has always operated with a long-term perspective that includes strategically building a franchise that is capable of weathering different economic and financial climates. As we continue through a period of uncertainty associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Bank is making every effort to focus on transparency and continuous improvement. We have implemented a number of strategies to lessen the economic impact to our company, employees, and clients. We are in this together.
Through strategic implementations we made in 2019, Pacific Premier has the infrastructure in place to support a much larger institution and will continue with the acquisition and integration of Opus Bank, which was announced in early 2020. Thank you to all who are involved in making Pacific Premier a top-performing institution.
