Building a Lasting Relationship
Company: XL Construction
Client since: 2010
"I appreciate that we see the same level of effort by the bank to meet our needs as an existing client as we did when they were seeking our business as a new customer."
~Eric Raff, founder and CEO of XL Construction
“Bridge Bank really listened to what we were looking for and responded with an offering that met our requirements better than other, larger, banks. I appreciate that we see the same level of effort by the bank to meet our needs as an existing client as we did when they were seeking our business as a new customer. That effort has translated into support from the bank that has helped us meet our financial goals.” -Eric Raff, Founder & CEO
Bridge Bank is committed to its clients and the community. Their work with XL Construction epitomizes that commitment. Eric Raff and Dave Beck founded XL Construction in Silicon Valley in 1992, a commercial general contractor committed to providing the highest standard of excellence and complete customer satisfaction. The company grew its niche in technical building, discovering along the way that the projects that really inspired them were the ones that improved lives; hospitals, laboratories and schools. Out of that realization came its purpose, “We build to improve lives.”
In the ensuing years, XL Construction applied that purpose to all aspects of the business, expanding it from just the projects it constructed to an idea that informed employee practices, approach to teamwork, partnership, and community service. Today, XL Construction employs over 400 people across three offices and is regularly ranked among the top in several categories such as Top General Contractors, Healthiest Employers, and Best Places to work in the Bay Area.
XL Construction was previously with a very large bank but they didn’t feel that the staff took the time to really understand their business. As a result, they did not provide the service and terms that XL Construction needed. At Bridge Bank, they make it a priority to listen to clients, understand their goals and objectives while providing specific and customized services. Bridge Bank listened to XL Construction and designed a line of credit that was completely unique and tailored to their business model. Today XL Construction has the financial tools to succeed and improve more lives because of Bridge Bank.
