FREMONT, Calif. March 14, 2013 - Fremont Bank, a leading full-service community bank in California, announced today that Patrick Camp has rejoined its commercial lending team as a commercial relationship manager. Camp will focus on expanding the bank’s commercial lending business in Danville, Walnut Creek, Antioch, San Ramon and surrounding cities.
Camp, who previously worked as a relationship officer with Fremont Bank, brings to his new position nearly two decades of commercial real estate lending and asset management experience.

We are thrilled he has rejoined our team,” said Senior Vice President of Community Banking Kim Burdick. “Having worked with us in the past, Patrick understands the community bank model and embraces our commitment to ‘Success through Partnership.’ He'll be a tremendous asset to our commercial lending division as we grow our relationships in Danville and nearby areas.”
A member of the Healthcare Financial Management Association since 1994, Camp has worked extensively in healthcare related financing, and will also lead Fremont Bank's outreach efforts to hospitals, physicians groups, and other segments within the medical industry.
Last year, Fremont Bank had one of its strongest years of commercial lending on record, originating $339 million in loans that produced revenue of $221 million—a roughly 37 percent increase from 2011.
