About Us

Celebrating 20 Years!

Thanks for letting us serve YOU for the past 20 years... and counting!

Founded in Everett, Washington on April 1, 1997, Coastal Community Bank is now the largest bank headquartered in Snohomish County. We operate 12 branches throughout Snohomish and Island Counties and proudly employ over 150 of your neighbors. 

Coastal has always led with people.  Our employees utilize their strengths to set the course and are empowered to do the right things for their clients.  And for Coastal, an organization who knows what it takes to thrive as a small business, our mission is a given:

Our reason for being is to champion the small business owner.

The name champion resonates with us for many reasons.  For many of the bank’s customers, Coastal was advocating for them when others wouldn’t.  This was especially evident in the years leading up to the financial crisis of 2008 and the years that followed.  Through the dozens of bank failures, mergers and consolidations in the Puget Sound area, Coastal maintained its commitment to the communities it serves. 

Coastal started its Darrington branch on a card table in the front of a hardware store when a national bank threatened to pull up stakes and leave the town without a bank.  On Camano Island, Coastal saw the fastest way to start helping small businesses was to set up shop out of a car.  So they did. During the height of the financial crisis, Coastal bankers sat with business clients through late nights and frustrating spreadsheets to find ways to help fight for their struggling business.  As our communities have endured crisis and triumph, our bankers were there.  And that’s what we call the Local Difference! 

A History We Are Proud to Call Our Own!
