PALO ALTO, Calif. -- September 5, 2013

Avidbank (“the Bank”), an independent full-service commercial bank serving
businesses and consumers in Northern California, announced today that its
President and Board Member, Kenneth D. Brenner has assumed a new position as
Head of Strategic Relationships and will continue to serve on the Board.

The Bank also announced that Executive Vice President and Chief Credit
Officer, Ronald E. Oliveira, has been promoted to President and will remain
Chief Credit Officer. Dori Hamilton, Executive Vice President and Division
Manager of Corporate Banking, has taken on the additional role of Chief
Banking Officer.

“These strategic changes have been in the works for some time,” stated Mark D.
Mordell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The Board has been focused on
building the right platform for our Bank to grow in our marketplace. This
involved hiring proven executives to give us ‘bench strength’ for proper
succession planning, as well as successfully completing our institutional
capital raise in June. It has been a very busy year for us, and we are excited
to have these three professionals in key influential roles to advance the
Bank’s mission.”

Mordell added, “Ken was the first hire when we began to restructure our
management team in 2006, and we would not be where we are today without Ken’s
energy and network. I am pleased that he will continue with us in his new
position, as well as serving on the Board.”

“I am proud of what we have accomplished over the years and am excited to pass
the torch to someone as qualified as Ron,” Mr. Brenner said. “I am not going
anywhere, and I look forward to continuing my contributions as a Board member
and in my new role as Head of Strategic Relationships.”

Mordell also stated, “Ron has both small and large bank experience – not only
in credit, but in leadership and operations as well. His significant
contributions to-date have been made at many levels and will continue in the
future with his expanded role.”

In response to Dori Hamilton’s additional responsibilities, Mordell added,
“There is no one who better epitomizes Avidbank’s commitment to clients, and
the sense of urgency and competitiveness required to win deals, than Dori. A
proven ‘go to’ person for many of our bankers across the organization, Dori
will continue to add great value in her new role.”
