Fremont Bank to mark 50th anniversary with Fairgrounds fireworks tonight

Celebration to feature employee band, KKIQ

Fremont Bank will light up the night sky tonight in celebration of its 50th Anniversary.

The fireworks display will start at 9 p.m. at the Alameda County Fairgrounds, marking a day of festivities by the bank for its employees, their families, community representatives and businesses that have made the bank successful over the years.

An estimated 1,500 bank associates and immediate family are planning to attend the celebration as the bank ignites the night sky with fireworks and festivities.

Brian A. Gentry, senior private banking officer, said that as part of the celebration, local radio station KKIQ will broadcast live from the event and will be interviewing key bank executives throughout the evening while a Fremont employee live rock band also performs.

Also at the event will be bank executives Michael Wallace, Brad Anderson, Andrew Mastorakis and founding family member Howard Hyman.

"Over the last 50 years, this bank has transformed the way banks have conducted business in the past and continues to do so today," Hyman said.

"Our success has been built on the relationships we cultivate with our community, our financial partners, valued clients and loyal associates," he added. "On this memorable night, we will celebrate those who have contributed to our success."

Fremont Bank was recognized recently by American Banker as the No. 1 Mid-Tier Community Bank in the U.S. and by the ABA Banking Journal for the second year in a row as "Top Performing Midsized Bank" in the U.S. Also, for the 11th year in a row, San Francisco Business Times recognized Fremont Bank as a "Top Corporate Philanthropist."
