Bridge Bank Completes Brand Evolution Initiative

Updated logo, website and tagline among Bridge Bank’s new brand elements

San Jose, CA – March 11, 2013 - Bridge Capital Holdings (NASDAQ:BBNK), whose subsidiary is Bridge Bank, a full-service professional business bank headquartered in Silicon Valley and with offices located nationwide, announced today that it has completed a 17-month brand evolution initiative, culminating with the introduction of an updated logo, tagline and corporate website.

"I am proud of the result of this extensive, research-based project in which we relied heavily on the input of our clients, employees and the broader business community,” said Daniel P. Myers, president and CEO of Bridge Bank. “We believe that this enhanced way of communicating who we are more accurately represents the unique business banking experience we provide to businesses, and have done so since our inception in 2001. We now have new tools to increase our visibility in the market and better position the bank to identify growth opportunities now and into the future.”

Bridge Bank’s redesigned website was launched today, along with its updated logo and tagline – “Be bold, venture wisely.”

“Our new tagline is meant to encapsulate the Bridge Bank experience,” said Ryan Barringer, senior vice president of marketing and brand strategy for Bridge Bank. “Additionally, it is a challenge to entrepreneurs to pursue new ideas and business ventures, but to do so prudently, and with the help of a trusted partner.” The bank’s brand is defined by four key elements: the uniquely qualified people that the bank recruits and develops, the bank’s commitment to being flexible and to providing customized solutions, its entrepreneurial spirit that helps it to understand and solve the challenges of its clients, and the bank’s small- and mid-market expertise.

Bridge Bank engaged San Francisco-based advertising agency Engine Company One to facilitate the brand evolution project. “Bridge Bank has such a clear point of difference in their category,” said Scott Aal, creative director and partner of Engine Company One. “Our goal was to make sure that potential clients understand that in the same way that their current clients do.”

About Bridge Bank, National Association
Bridge Bank is a full-service professional business bank founded in the highly competitive climate of Silicon Valley in 2001.

It’s how we go about doing so that differentiates us from our competition.
