Big Bear Lake * Lucerne * Running
What is happening with the ATMs?
Foundation Bank Team is so excited to announce an important
development regarding the Automatic Teller Machines at the Big Bear Lake, Lucerne,
and Running Springs locations. Beginning Friday, November 30, the former FMB-‐branded
ATMs have been removed from their sites.
First Foundation Bank (FFB) clients will be able to make any ATM, their ATM!
That’s right – any ATM at any shopping
center, grocery store, and beyond can now be used.
This new freedom to make any ATM your ATM, has served FFB’s existing clients well. A
client can walk-up to any ATM and obtain cash, and any transaction charges will
be reversed in their next statement billing cycle. It might seem like an
inconvenience at first blush, but the reality is that FFB is making it even
easier to access an ATM. First
Foundation Bank’s current clients love this freedom and
flexibly and believes that new clients will appreciate the new service, as
Foundation Bank and the Merger with First Mountain Bank:
Mountain Bank, personalized, professional customer service and relationship
banking are core values of First
Foundation Bank. FFB provides a professional environment where clients
can take care of their banking and financial needs with responsive, knowledgeable,
and reliable bankers who know them by name and go the extra mile to
provide the value-‐added solutions with exemplary service. With the
merger comes the establishment of a stronger bank in Southern California,
enabling the full deployment of personal banking, business banking and private
wealth management services. Our combined capabilities will create a One-Stop Shop
for their customers’ diverse financial needs.
Both banks are very proud of their quality of
people, the quality of their advice, and the quality of their
service. The commitment to service is a core value at First Foundation Bank and FFB’s Team will strive to
ensure all clients have a valuable experience through all interactions
with FFB’s personnel.
First Foundation Bank is excited to be a
partner in Big Bear Valley
and are already supporting groups such as the Big Bear Association of
Realtors Charity and working with the Big Bear Middle School.
