Gene Dunford is senior managing director of Umpqua Bank’s Los Angeles Corporate Banking Division. He joined in 2016 to establish its new corporate banking division in Los Angeles. A 25-year veteran of L.A.’s commercial banking scene, Dunford quickly assembled a seasoned team of corporate bankers with an average of 25 years each of middle market experience.

Dunford also built a book of business that easily exceeded Umpqua’s initial three-year lending goal. His rapid success in helping Umpqua grow their presence in L.A. has been a catalyst for the bank’s continued commercial business growth across the region. His team currently manages approximately $700 million in assets.
