Top Workplace 2022

We are honored to be named a Top Workplace for the 12th year in a row in the Bay Area! This year, we were ranked No. 7 among large businesses, and we couldn’t be any more excited.

Our team brings a family-oriented, getting-to-yes energy every day that excites not only themselves – but our clients as well. Our Associates’ success and happiness is the reason why our clients love banking with us. We pledge to remain devoted to our clients and the communities we serve and to the Associates who make us who we are.

But don’t take our word for it! We asked several Fremont Bank employees why they love working here so much:

“Feeling supported and appreciated is the key to a healthy, happy workplace. Working for a company over 20 years is a testament to the unwavering character of Fremont Bank. As a tenured manager, I have some important ideas that I bring to the table. Not only am I listened to, but more importantly, I’m heard.”
- Deborah Willis, Brentwood Branch Manager

“I’ve been with the bank for 19 ½ years, and I am fortunate enough to work alongside great departments where teamwork is a MUST. We work together harmoniously and in sync to deliver a six-diamond experience within the bank and with our clients.”
- Ciel Santos, Procurement Supervisor

“I have a seat at the table, and my voice is heard and respected. I get the chance to be the best version of myself every day, and I am celebrated for it. When we say welcome to the Fremont Bank Family, we mean family here!”
- Jenna Williams, Commercial Relationship Manager

“As a 20-year employee of Fremont Bank, there have been many times I have felt immense pride in being an Associate. Whether figuring out how to keep the Associates safe, keeping our branches open, figuring out PPP [Paycheck Protection Program] loans to keep businesses afloat, etc., Fremont Bank is a great place to work.”
- Peggy Johnson, Executive Assistant

“I have felt very valued and appreciated at Fremont Bank since the first day I was hired in 2015. Fremont Bank has a family environment among Associates and clients that makes this diverse company unique. Leadership genuinely cares about client focus and high quality, which influences the organizational outcomes, such as job performance and turnover.”
- Maria Santos, Wealth Management Private Banker

“Fremont Bank is an excellent place to work because they are always looking to advance you in your career. They recognize promoting from within is the best way to retain top talent.”
- Jay Passi, Client Contact Center Lead Operations Analyst

“Fremont Bank was built on a sense of duty to the community it serves. I feel that same duty, and the bank has shared its extensive resources with causes that are important to me. The long history of charitable contributions by the bank makes it THE place to work.”
- Steven Aubel, Logistics Services Manager

“Fremont Bank is a great place to work because it truly values the community and supports several local charity and educational organizations. I’m prideful that my workplace cares so much about our community. I consider our coworkers as family and truly appreciate that we all look out for one another.”
- Denise Dwyer-Derrico, Residential Lending Executive Officer

“My time at Fremont Bank has been short, but the experience so far has been everything but short. Since my initial interview, it has been clear that Fremont Bank’s focus on the development and growth of their Associates is a top priority. The development and opportunities I have received here is not only rewarding but a great reminder that there are companies that truly care about their employees.”
- Luis Olague, Senior Content Specialist

“The Fremont Bank team is my second family, always supportive and caring. The management allowed me to set my own career goals and guided me toward achieving them. Every day, I look forward to working with and learning from the best.”
