Commencement Bank (OTCQX: CBWA) is pleased to announce the upcoming move of the Bank’s headquarters and Tacoma Branch from the current location at 1102 Commerce Street to the locally-owned office building at 1313 Broadway in downtown Tacoma. The move is scheduled to take place in early 2025.

“This move is small geographically, but it is a big step forward for the future of Commencement Bank. This transition will allow for a growing workforce and will consolidate the existing Tacoma team onto one floor, increasing communication and synergies between departments, and ultimately leading to better overall service for our customers. As part of the move, our bank will have naming rights to the building which will further enhance our brand,” said John E. Manolides, Chief Executive Officer.

Commencement has occupied four of the building’s six floors at 1102 Commerce for the past 12 years but has called downtown Tacoma its home since opening the doors in 2006. As of 2023, Commencement is the largest bank headquartered in Pierce County and intends to remain as such. Will Frame, Drew Frame, and Ray Schuler of Kidder Mathews represented the Bank on the lease transaction.
