First Northern Bank announces new director

By
March 11, 2011 |

Dixon-based First Northern Bank has announced the appointment of Richard M. Martinez to the board of directors for both the bank and the company, First Northern Community Bancorp.

He also will serve on the bank’s Directors Loan Committee. With the addition of Martinez, the number seated on both boards will increase from 10 to 11 directors.

Martinez, 55, is a partner in Triad Farms, a diversified row crop farm that operates property in Yolo and Solano counties. He has been responsible for the financial management of the farming operations for the past 26 years. In 1981-85, Martinez was employed by the Yolo County Flood Control and Water Conservation District in Yolo County and served as division manager for the irrigation and flood control operations.

“I am very much looking forward to serving on the board of directors for such a highly respected community bank that’s been locally owned and operated for over 100 years,” Martinez said in a news release.

“First Northern Bank’s commitment to remaining an independent bank benefits the local communities in many ways. Not only does the bank give back to its communities through its lending to local businesses and residents, it provides monetary and in-kind donations to local nonprofits, and it recognizes employees for their community service, civic and volunteer activities.”

Martinez also is chairman of the Dixon Joint Powers Authority for Regional Drainage and serves on the board of directors for the Dixon Resource Conservation District. He is active in many agricultural and natural resource-related associations and advisory committees, such as the Yolo Basin Foundation, the California Farm Bureau, the California Tomato Research  Institute, the Yolo Bypass Working Group, and the California Tomato, Alfalfa, Wheat and Dry Beans Growers Associations.

“Martinez’s experience in management of both private and public sectors in the region has provided him with extensive knowledge of the local agricultural community,” the news release said.

He has a bachelor’s degree in agriculture from California State University, Chico. Martinez and his wife, Connie, raised their three daughters in Woodland, and recently moved to Dixon.

The bank’s board of directors also includes Gregory DuPratt of Dixon, chairman; John M. Carbahal of Winters, vice chairman; Lori J. Aldrete of Sacramento; Frank J. Andrews Jr. of Fairfield; John F. Hamel of Davis; Diane P. Hamlyn of Sacramento; Foy McNaughton of Davis; Owen J. Onsum of Dixon; David W. Schulze of El Macero; and Louise A. Walker of Dixon.

First Northern Bank, an independent community bank established in 1910, serves Yolo, Solano, Sacramento and Placer counties and the west slope of El Dorado County. For more information, visit http://www.thatsmybank.com.
