SVP, Relationship Banking Team Leader
Whether she’s working at the bank, serving a community agency or hitting the trail, Vicki Gray enjoys bringing people together. Part of that involves building bonds and solving problems.
“I love to help people find a new way to do things if what they’re doing isn’t working,” she says.
Vicki grew up in Oregon. When she and her husband had the opportunity to move back to the state in 1993, they jumped at the chance and have called Eugene home since then.
“We put down roots and never left,” she says. “I love Eugene. I like that we are a big enough city to enjoy some of the perks, but we’re not so big that it doesn’t feel like a community.”
Running into someone she knows and meeting new people are what she enjoys most about her job as a Senior Vice President and Relationship Banking Leader at our Eugene branch. Vicki joined OPB in 2018 after serving at another bank for 14 years.
“I meet all kinds of people,” she says. “It’s not the same thing every single day.”
In her personal time, Vicki enjoys playing tennis and joins in United States Tennis Association tournaments. She also likes to spend time outdoors whenever possible. She’s especially fond lately of running, hiking and spending time with family.
“If you have people you care about and you want to get out with them together, hiking is the great connector,” she says.
Vicki also serves on the Center for Leadership & Ethics advisory board for Bushnell University and is the vice president of the Professional Women’s Forum. “We provide an opportunity for women in the workforce – those who either own a business or work in a professional capacity – to come together and support one another,” she says.
In addition, Vicki is the board chair for Cornerstone Community Housing, which develops affordable housing communities and helps provide connect people to “wraparound services,” such as financial counseling, diet consultation and health care.
Vicki brings that sense of community to her job at OPB and is always looking for ways to make connections.
“You should have a banker, not just a bank,” she says. “If you find that you’re not happy with your current relationship and it’s causing you angst, you should look for a bank that has a more of a personal touch and knows who you are and understands your business.”
