Ken got his start in building where he eventually served as owner and CFO of a small construction company. That experience taught him a series of valuable lessons about managing people and balance sheets. The lessons he learned have helped Ken earn numerous awards over the years including being named Umpqua’s Top Commercial Banker in 2006, 2008, 2016 and 2018. The University of Oregon used alum currently specializes in helping companies that provide senior health care and living services, an area of the economy that’s seen rapid growth in the past two decades.
An athlete and outdoor enthusiast, Ken enjoys playing futsol with friends during the week. When he’s not working, the longtime Southeast Portland resident also enjoys weekend trips to the Oregon Coast with family and friends.
