Banner Bank promoted Jim McLean to EVP of its CRE lending division, and a member of the bank’s executive management committee. McLean is filling the position vacated by Doug Bennett, who retired after more than 30 years with the Washington-chartered commercial bank.
McLean now leads a team of nearly 80 employees throughout the Banner Bank’s five state footprint in Washington, Oregon, California, Utah and Idaho. That includes a multifamily lending group, CRE specialty unit, residential construction and income property divisions, and loan administration related to the division.
Banner Bank’s Mark J. Grescovich said, “Under Jim’s leadership, the team will further focus on driving asset growth, responding to the new regulatory environment, maintaining credit discipline and remaining stewards of the balance sheet.”
McLean joined Banner Bank in November 2010 as SVP in the CRE division.
