Over the last 12 years, Jim has worked his way up from Associate to VP at Umpqua Bank. It was his pure determination and creativity that got him here and it’s at the heart of everything he does. The way small business owners and entrepreneurs also exude these qualities, is the very thing that feeds Jim’s desire to help them achieve their dreams. He thrives on being a connector and a problem solver and thinks of himself as a Swiss army knife – armed with a selection of tools his small business clients need, exactly when they need them.
Jim is currently working through a masters-level program at the Paciﬁc Coast Banking School which he will complete in 2022. In addition, he graduated from the Portland Business Alliance’s Leadership Portland program in 2017, a nine-month program that dives into the critical issues aﬀecting the region. He loves spending his free time exploring the Paciﬁc Northwest with his wife, Becky, and two daughters, Alice and Willa, along with their Goldendoodle, Sandy.
