Private Bank of California, a small lender headquartered in Century City, announced the opening of its first branch in Orange County.

The seven-year-old bank said Wednesday that it has officially opened the doors to a branch on Main Street in Irvine. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in conjunction with the Irvine Chamber of Commerce.

“We will benefit from having this quality, relationship-focused bank in the area as they devote themselves to stimulating growth and supporting private individuals and private businesses in the community,” chamber President Sam Murray said in a statement.

Private Bank also has full-service branches in Century City and Hollywood, and a loan production office in downtown Los Angeles.
