Welcome to the Downey Office.

Farmers & Merchants Bank believes that the historic and close-knit Downey area greatly benefits from a strong community bank that is able to effectively serve both its residents and its businesses. The new office, which opened in 2013 and is conveniently located next to the Stonewood Mall at the corner of Lakewood and Firestone Blvds., brings a comprehensive level of banking service to the storied Downey community. It also brings F&M's unmatched expertise in relationship banking to a city that’s been central to the greater Los Angeles economy for decades through its leadership in the industries of aerospace, entertainment, and much more.

While its Downey location is relatively new, F&M's relationship with the Downey community is longstanding. For many years, F&M has supported area events, including the annual Arc Walk for Independence. In addition, Branch Manager John Casillas, is well-known and highly regarded in this community having been active in the city's Kiwanis Club and its Chamber of Commerce. John brings more than 20 years of deep banking experience to the new location.

My name is John Casillas and I have the distinct pleasure of managing the Farmers & Merchants Bank (F&M) Downey office. My goal is always to serve customers in a friendly and professional manner, ensuring that all of their banking needs are met. Character and integrity are of the utmost importance to me and I'm honored to work for an institution that shares these values. I have been proud to serve as a member of the Kiwanis club of Downey for the past eight years and to be active in the Downey Chamber of Commerce, for which I have also held the position of director for two years.

I have more than 24 years of banking experience with community and regional banks and an academic background in business administration. I have been married for 15 years and have four boys ages 5 to 13, and enjoy spending time with them playing board games, participating in sports and bicycling.

I look forward to serving you. Please call or stop by our offices and tell us how we can help.

My name is Juan Arreola and I have the distinct pleasure of serving as Regional Manager of the Bixby Knolls, Downey, Lakewood and Memorial Hospital offices of Farmers & Merchants Bank (F&M). I started as a Teller and now have the privilege of being a Regional Manager. I enjoy spending time with my family and am a member of the Rotary Club of Lakewood.

Twenty-three years of banking experience and a graduate-level certificate from the prestigious Pacific Coast Banking School have enabled me to play an instrumental role in F&M’s growth and, more importantly, assist people with their banking needs. Helping people is what motivates me every day. My fondest memory with F&M was the day I opened my offer letter from the HR Manager, Sheri Mallon. It opened the proverbial door for me into the business world and propelled me into a banking career at F&M.
