Oregon Pacific Bank Adds New Talent to Corporate Team


Oregon Pacific Bank is proud to announce the addition of Amber White and Kate Salyers to the Bank’s corporate team.

Kate will be filling the position of Senior Vice President and Credit Administrator to assist with the Bank’s growing lending needs.

“We consider ourselves very lucky to add such talent to our local banking team,” says Ron Green, President and CEO of Oregon Pacific Bank. “Amber and Kate join us with many years of experience and great enthusiasm. Both are looking forward to continuing their careers with a local community based bank, to deliver excellence to their clients through relationship banking and local decision making.”
