Columbia Bank Commemorates 95 Years in the New Jersey Banking Business

March 23, 2022


Columbia Bank, New Jersey’s trusted bank since 1927, is proud to announce its 95th anniversary. The financial institution, which has served the area’s families, individuals, and small businesses for almost one hundred years, was originally founded with a single branch in the Bergen School House in Fair Lawn, New Jersey. Today, the Bank has an expansive network of 62 locations throughout the state, and a diverse team of banking professionals comprised of 700 employees.

While over the course of 95 years Columbia Bank has grown to include a full suite of commercial and consumer products, the latest in digital technology, and an asset base of approximately $9.1 billion, its longstanding commitment to the communities it serves remains. The company-wide volunteering program “Team Columbia”, hosts approximately 100 events yearly, including sponsorship/participation in food drives, walks for a cure, community reinvestment projects and more, with the goal of giving back and making an impact across New Jersey.

“Helping New Jersey residents and local businesses succeed has been Columbia Bank’s mission since 1927”, said Thomas J. Kemly, President and CEO of Columbia Bank. We are proud of our legacy and commitment to partnering with the New Jersey community for almost a century, and empowering our customers and future generations for financial success.” Kemly added, “We have achieved this incredible milestone through because of the hard work, passion, and dedication of our team members.”
