Kitsap Bank marks 105th anniversary

Kitsap Bank marked 105 years of service to the Greater Puget Sound region today.

One of the oldest community banks in the Washington, Kitsap Bank was organized by a Seattle financier and three Port Orchard men, and opened for business on Aug. 8, 1908.

The bank was purchased in 1922 by Frank E. Langer, and has been owned by the same family for over 90 years.

While Kitsap Bank has grown from humble beginnings to over $900 million strong, with 19 branches in five Western Washington counties, many of Kitsap Bank’s valued traditions remain, including their role as the community’s partner.

To celebrate, Kitsap Bank invites you to their branches to celebrate with cake, cookies, and refreshments through today.

In addition, Kitsap Bank also invites you to join them at the Kitsap County Fair and Stampede, Aug. 21 to 25.

“We are honored to be serving as our community’s bank for over a century,” said Steve Politakis, Chief Executive Officer. “While our bank has changed and evolved over the past century, our long-standing commitment to our customers and community has never wavered. Kitsap Bank will continue to be your community bank, focusing on our core values of relationships, community, and trust.”
