SVP, Market Director

Matt Backlund

Matt loves being a banker. And that love goes a long way in making his clients feel understood. The veteran with over 18 years’ experience knew the first time he met with a client that he had found his calling. Ever since, he’s become a trusted advisor, helping people achieve their financial goals by providing innovative solutions and loans for a variety of needs. While leading a team of relationship managers, he’s helped to create strong connections in the community and prides himself on maintaining an open-door policy to foster honest communication.

When he’s not working, Matt spends most his time working to improve his community and spending time with family. He serves as a board member with several organizations including the Tri Cities Cancer Center Foundation, the Boys and Girls Club and Columbia Basin College Foundation. He also coaches his two daughters’ soccer and basketball teams and enjoys taking his girls on a variety of outdoor adventures.
