Why do you do what you do?

My professional journey has been rich with business and personal experiences and has afforded me opportunities to meet and work with a broad spectrum of amazing business professions and in many instances, participated as a service provider / partner, facilitating in the success of their commercial endeavors. Those opportunities represent the greatest rewards I’ve realized over the decades of my working life.


Jeff brings his experiences as a small business owner, manager of single-unit and multi-unit bank branch operations, 30+ years in commercial finance for small and middle market businesses, import / export finance, SBA and government programs, and instructor of college and professional level finance and management courses. His professional roles have been supported by strong interpersonal skills; adaptation to technological changes; thorough understanding of financial statements and tax returns; and establishment, implementation, and tracking of short and long term business plans.

In addition to the work related experience, Jeff has been involved in the communities he’s lived by serving on numerous non-profit boards, city council advisory boards, and business associations prior to relocating to The Dalles.
