Suncrest Bank of Visalia said the deal is subject to various regulatory approvals and closing conditions, plus approval by shareholders of both Suncrest and CBBC.

CBBC CEO John DiMichele and President Chad Meyer will join the board of the combined bank as non-executive directors.
Following completion of the merger, the CBBC branches in West Sacramento and Lodi will continue to operate under the Community Business Bank name, as a division of Suncrest Bank.
“The combination of our two strong community banks will not only benefit our customers but also have a positive impact on our staff and communities, while rewarding our shareholders for the bank’s excellent performance,” DiMichele said in a statement accompanying the announcement.
