Plumas Bank and HEIT Announce Strategic Partnership

Managed Services to Reduce Non Interest Expense, Improve Efficiencies

QUINCY, CA--(Marketwire - November 24, 2009) - Plumas Bank recently announced a strategic partnership with HEIT, a national technology management firm that provides managed performance, compliance, and security services for forward-thinking financial institutions.

Plumas Bank President and CEO Doug Biddle commented, "As a progressive, proactive, customer-centric institution, we are very pleased to partner with HEIT. Even though we're nestled in rural, mountainous communities, HEIT provides the resources to keep us on the cutting edge of technology so we can offer even better service than 'big' banks."

"The most valuable asset in this partnership is the access to HEIT's expertise. This translates to a better experience for our customers and our employees," added Plumas Bank Executive Vice President Rose Dembosz.

"This is a great example of how we're supporting progressive financial institutions to address issues of performance, compliance, and security in a business environment riddled with margin compression, tightened spending, and increased regulatory complexity," said HEIT CEO, Dan Holt.

California Bankers Association CEO, Rodney K. Brown, lauded HEIT's calculated insight and technical acumen as the association's endorsed partner for information security and IT risk management. "Technology plays a vital role in bank operations and a trusted provider can ensure that your bank runs smoothly while mitigating risk and maintaining compliance," he said. "CBA is pleased to endorse HEIT and offer these top-level services to our members."

Holt attributes Plumas Bank's service provider selection to HEIT's experienced and highly accredited subject matter experts and reputation within the financial industry. As part of HEIT's client community, Plumas Bank now has access to the firm's elite team of financial industry-focused technology and compliance experts.

"It is great to see so many bank executives become more strategic and knowledgeable about how technology can transform a bank's posture to one where community banks can offer more than the big banks and become the leaders," Holt said. "HEIT fits the best solution into an institution's overall business instead of trying to force the institution to fit into the confines of a single methodology."
