Long-time employee of Oregon Pacific Bank, Judy Matheny, retired on Friday, June 30th, 2017, after 21 years at Oregon Pacific Bank and 37 years in the banking industry.
Judy is well known for her work in the Bank’s Trust Department, where she worked as a Trust Officer assisting Florence community members with estate planning and settlement, wealth management, and a variety of other trust and fiduciary services.
Judy’s banking career began in 1992 where she worked as a Teller, Financial Services Representative, and Branch Consolidation Specialist for the First Interstate Bank of Oregon in Eugene. In 1996 she was hired by Oregon Pacific Bank as an Administrative Assistant for the Bank’s Trust and Investments department. After earning her Certified Trust & Financial Advisor (CTFA) designation in 2001, it wasn’t long until she became a Trust Officer in 2002 and was promoted to Assistant Vice President in 2005.
“Working with Judy was one of the greatest pleasures I ever had,” says Jay Boelter, Director of Trust & Wealth Management Services. “Judy was a big part of our trust department. Her knowledge and years of experience helped bring the department to where it is today. She set a great example for everyone at work. She was a role model by the ways of her teamwork, diligence, efficiency, and friendliness, and all of us here at Oregon Pacific Bank wish her the very best in her retirement.”
Judy personally interviewed and hired her successor, Tina Meyers in 1998. Tina will be filling Judy’s role as Trust Officer and CTFA for Oregon Pacific Bank’s Trust Department in Florence moving forward.
