WELCOME TO FIRST FOUNDATION BANK.

I am pleased to announce that First Foundation Bank has recently acquired Desert Commercial Bank. We are committed to the communities Desert Commercial Bank serves. We welcome you to our First Foundation family.

This acquisition means increased bank locations spanning all of Southern California. We will offer inter-branch banking between the two banks’ offices beginning September 17, 2012. All Desert Commercial Bank locations will remain open and all deposit accounts and loans will remain in effect.

Our Private Banking team known in the desert for their dedication to providing a superior client experience look forward to serving you. Our Private Bankers are: Robin Calder, Stu Bailey, and Valerie Van Winkle in Palm Desert and Nancy Thornberg in the Imperial Valley.

This is an exciting time for all of us. We are confident that we will create an even more rewarding banking relationship for you through a broader platform of integrated services including: investment management, wealth planning, consulting, trust, insurance, and banking services, while still enjoying the personal attention you’ve come to expect.

We look forward to serving all of your financial needs.
