Oregon Pacific Bank Promotes Kim Erickson to Florence Team Leader
Oregon Pacific Bank is pleased to announce the promotion of Kim Erickson to Senior Vice President and Florence Team Leader. Kim will take on the added responsibilities of strategically leading the Bank’s market presence in the Florence area, while retaining her role as Manager of Residential Lending.
“I’m excited and extremely grateful for the opportunity” says Erickson. “My role as Market Team Leader will be to support our extraordinary banking leadership team of Lori Gates, Branch Manager, and Mike Webb, Commercial Relationship Manager and give guidance where I can to ensure we exceed the expectations of our clients, shareholders and community. Collectively, they have over 50 years of experience with Oregon Pacific Bank. To many of our local clients and community members, Lori and Mike are the face of Oregon Pacific Bank here in Florence. Their vital roles and relationships with our community and our clients will remain unchanged.”
In an effort to establish organizational consistency, Oregon Pacific Bank has adopted a Team Leader role in the other communities it serves. With this promotion, all markets now have a senior level leadership position, allowing executive management the opportunity to focus on long term success and independence.
“Since the recession, there has been a continued consolidation of banks in Oregon”, says Ron Green, President and CEO. “Our number one goal is to perform at a level that allows us to remain independent and continue to serve our clients at the level they are accustom to. Local, community banks are the lifeblood of smaller communities across the country. Having market team leaders who serve as the local banking strategic leader will only continue to strengthen our ability to deliver world class service provided by local staff who are empowered to make decisions”.
Oregon Pacific Bank was founded in Florence, Oregon on December 17, 1979. The Bank is proud to be celebrating its 40th anniversary this year as a locally managed and operated bank. The bank continues to maintain its corporate headquarters in Florence and proudly serves the banking needs of our communities of Florence, Coos Bay, Roseburg, Eugene, with a Trust and Wealth Management office in Medford.
