The ceremony was held June 24th at The Portland Art Museum and attended by 800 persons, including City of Lake Oswego officials.

It was the bank’s first year cited for this annual award and it was ranked 31 among the top 100, recording a 71% growth rate.

Dan Heine, CEO accepted the prestigious award on behalf of the bank. Heine commented “we are thrilled to be included in this distinguished group, especially during these challenging economic times. Managing growth requires unique skills and discipline and much credit goes to our shareholders for their financial support, our board for their guiding wisdom and our employees for successfully and enthusiastically carrying out our company’s mission. We thank you! As a result of this teamwork, our customers receive “world-class” service and value; and we create jobs and support for the communities we serve”.

The 5-year old Bank of Oswego has $160 million in total assets and serves businesses and professionals in the Lake Oswego and Sherwood communities. Because of its success and projected growth, it recently announced a public stock offering to raise additional capital to commence in July.
