Welcome to the San Clemente Office.

From professional surfers to reality TV stars, the San Clemente office serves a diverse group of customers. In August 2011, the F&M branch moved to a more centralized home on El Camino Real, a short distance away from its previous location.

The new office, on the corner of El Camino and Mariposa, is more convenient to the downtown area. The new 8,200-square-foot facility features an additional 2,100 square feet of space, increased parking capacity and a distinctive architectural style harkening back to San Clemente’s historic Spanish roots.  While the branch's address will change, the essential characteristics of the San Clemente office will remain the same.

The laid-back environment offers friendly customer service with a personal touch. The branch continues to support a variety of community groups including the Chamber of Commerce, Exchange Club of San Clemente, and the Casa Romantica Cultural Center and Gardens.

My name is Scot Proud and I have the distinct pleasure of managing the Farmers & Merchants Bank (F&M) San Clemente office after working as a Vice President and Relationship Manager serving the Santa Ana and Tustin communities. I enjoy spending time with my family and find tremendous satisfaction in giving back to the community. I am proud to serve as Past President on the Board of Directors for the Tustin Community Foundation and as Past Chairman on the Executive Committee and Board of Directors of the Tustin Chamber of Commerce.

Thirty-three years of banking experience combined with a bachelor’s degree from Cal Poly Pomona has enabled me to play an instrumental role in F&M’s growth and to assist our customers with their banking needs. Helping people is what motivates me every day. My fondest memories of F&M occur every day when I interact with our wonderful customers and help them find solutions for all of their banking needs.

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