South Umpqua State Bank was formed in 1953 in Canyonville, Oregon with 6 employees. It was started by some people working in the timber-logging business who wanted to create a means for their lumberjacks to cash their payroll checks.


Umpqua Bank has enjoyed some notability in the 21st century for its setup of bank branches. Traditionally, bank branches house back-office operations and administrators, along with secure deposit areas. Many of Umpqua Bank's branches are called 'stores', with a greater emphasis on retail operations and atmosphere than traditional bank branches.

Umpqua Bank stores also have a relatively flat administrative hierarchy. Many bank stores consist of only one Store Manager, with all other employees being referred to as 'Universal Associates'. The execution of this concept was billed as removing the, "thats not my department," thinking of employees and empowering all associates with the ability to work in all areas of a traditionally specialized banking industry.
