Northrim Bank History

What began as a small group with a big idea turned into a start-up bank operating from a trailer in a parking lot, then grew into a trusted, state-wide financial institution. When Northrim Bank first opened our doors, we served customers from two trailers in a parking lot. Today we are a trusted, state-wide financial institution.

In 1990, through pure dedication to purpose, Northrim Bank raised the $8 million in capital needed for the start-up, and Northrim Bank opened on December 4, 1990. It was founded on the idea of Customer First Service, so we are committed to providing professional, prompt, and caring service. We specialize in serving businesses, professionals, and individual Alaskans who are looking for personal service and value.

Today, Northrim Bank has matured from a small community bank with 21 employees, one branch, and $8 million in assets to an active, engaged community leader with well over 400 employees, branches from Fairbanks to Southeast Alaska, residential mortgage origination offices across the state, and over $1.5 billion in assets.

Ever since our foundation, we want to be Alaska’s most trusted financial institution, committed to adding value for our customers, communities, and shareholders.
