Welcome to the Orange Office.

Located at a busy intersection on Katella Avenue just off the 55 freeway, the F&M Orange branch serves the business and residential communities of northeastern Orange County and western Inland Empire.

Staff members are dedicated to providing the highest level of banking service. Since its inception in 1981, the office has been known for customer recognition, stability, and a strong foothold in the communities it serves.  Branch Manager Ankit Shah, Portfolio Banker Bob Schoeffler and Banking Relationship Specialist Adele Smith all reside in the city of Orange. Community involvement is also a priority for Orange’s employees. Ankit Shah participates with National Junior Basketball (NJB) and Bob Schoeffler works with the city's Rotary Club.

To celebrate its 30th birthday in 2011, the Orange branch underwent a major renovation before welcoming its customers and the public to attend two special anniversary events.

My name is Ankit Shah and I recently became manager of the Orange office with Farmers & Merchants Bank (F&M). Twelve years of banking experience combined with my Bachelor of Science degree from University of California, San Diego and Master of Business Administration degree from Pepperdine University has enabled me to play an instrumental role in F&M’s growth, while assisting people with their banking needs. By serving as a resource for customers to improve their financial posture, I am inspired to give 100% every day.  

My fondest memory with F&M was the day I was asked to become a board member for the Community Hospital of Long Beach. I am truly honored to serve the community in a capacity that has helped provide emergency services to over 100,000 people over the past two years. I credit F&M for giving me the tools needed to step into a leadership role and cultivate funds for an organization that is so valuable to the community.

Please call or stop by our office and introduce yourself. I welcome the opportunity to meet you.

My name is Scott Dowds and I have the distinct pleasure of serving as Regional Manager of the Fullerton, Santa Ana, Orange and Garden Grove Farmers & Merchants Bank (F&M) offices. I started as a Business Development Officer and now have the privilege of being a Regional Manager. I enjoy spending time with my family and serving the community by volunteering as a member of the Board of Directors for the Fullerton Chamber of Commerce, the Eastside Christian Schools and the Fullerton Boys & Girls Club. I also serve as Chairman of the Fullerton Rotary Membership Committee, Treasurer of the Los Hombres Amigos Foundation, and take part in the Huntington Beach Leadership Program.
 
Twenty-four years of banking experience combined with extensive college coursework has 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 attending the Architects of Peace dinner with Ken and Nancy Walker for the Nixon Library honoring President George Bush Sr. and Brent Scowcroft.
