QUINCY, Calif., Sept. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Plumas Bancorp (Nasdaq:PLBC), the parent company of Plumas Bank, announced that Director, President and Chief Executive Officer, Andrew J. Ryback, was recently appointed to the Board of the California Community Banking Network, (CCBN). A trade association in California that advocates exclusively for independent community banks, CCBN focuses on banking issues from a community banker's perspective. An affiliate of the Independent Community Bankers of America, or ICBA, CCBN was founded to serve as a distinct and authoritative voice for community banks throughout the Golden State.
Ryback commented, “It is important to improve and expand the banking industry; before the great recession there were over 100 de novo banks opening each year nationwide. In the past 6 years, only 4 de novo banks have opened; this is very disconcerting. Community banks are the backbone of our Nation’s economy; they fund small businesses, make the vast majority of agricultural loans and reinvest dollars back into their local communities. I am honored to be a part of an organization that focuses on helping community banks improve and grow through education and training; networking, lobbying, and creating products/services that are good for consumers and all communities, here in California and throughout the United States.”
Ryback joined Plumas Bank in July 2001.
