Board of Directors

In 1974, a group of local businessmen and ranchers came together to organize a local, independent bank that would serve the financial needs of the community. 15 members of this group became the first Board of Directors of Tri Counties Bank's and opened the first branch on March 11, 1975, in a mobile facility on Pillsbury Road. In 1981, TriCo Bancshares, a holding company with the Bank as its sole subsidiary, was formed. Currently, there are 10 individuals serving as directors of both the Holding Company and the Bank. In addition, founding members Everett B. Beich, Wendell J. Lundberg, Donald E. Murphy and Alex A. Vereschagin, Jr., and past Director Carroll Taresh are all standing Director Emeriti.
