Brittany Griffin is VP Deposit Relationship Manager for Community Bank of the Bay (CBB). CBB focuses on socially responsible banking, providing financial services to individuals, businesses, and nonprofit organizations throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. CBB is recognized for establishing the Bay Area Green Fund, which provides financing to sustainable businesses and projects and supports environmentally responsible values.
In her role at CBB, Brittany opens new deposit accounts and manages those clients on a day-to-day basis. What Brittany enjoys most about working at CBB is knowing that she’s helping to support an organization that is making an impact. CBB has hands-on involvement in the community and is committed to lending in low- to moderate-income areas. In addition, CBB encourages its employees to volunteer so that they can be a part of the community where their clients live and work. Brittany makes weekly deliveries for Wheels on Meals America, and she also volunteers with Open Heart Kitchen in Dublin, where she serves meal to seniors.
Through her work with CBB, Brittany finds that she is able to inspire other women in her field by never placing limits on herself. This allows her colleagues to see that they can excel in a male-dominated industry by using their natural gifts. Brittany has discovered that working in a male dominated industry can be empowering. It has taught her to lean into the support of other women, to be confident in her strengths, to focus on the positive, and to always move forward. Brittany knows first-hand that women have so much to offer the financial industry, combining a different level of empathy and care to something that can come across as transactional and cold.
Brittany recently became a member of Mt. Diablo Business Women (MDBW) and loves walking into our monthly meetings and being greeted by such a welcoming group of women. These meetings are helping her to develop and grow her network.
When not working or volunteering, Brittany’s favorite thing to do is to relax with her fiancé and their three pups. She also enjoys reading and traveling.
