Don’s successful lending career started in 1996, and he began managing loan officer teams in the Portland area in 2011. Through education and encouragement, he helps customers create a clear plan that keeps them on the path to homeownership, and he empowers loan officers to guide them through the process. His expertise in addressing problems and removing obstacles was recognized with his induction into the 2016 Leaders Club.
As a longtime Oregon resident, Don is active in his local homebuilders association and serves as a board member for both the Oregon Mortgage Bankers Association and Taste of Portland. In his spare time, he volunteers at his local food bank, Habitat for Humanity, and Paws Animal Shelter; coaches youth sports; and serves on the West Linn Youth Football board. Don has been married for 22 years and enjoys spending time with his son and daughter, watching his daughter’s rowing regattas, and watching movies.
