Pacific West in Oregon selects next president

Pacific West Bank in West Linn, Ore., could soon have a new president. 

The $300 million-asset bank said in a press release that Jason Wessling is set to take over the post, subject to regulatory approval. He will remain Pacific West’s chief financial officer and join the board. 

Wessling “was the first executive recruited after the capital raise in 2018,” Terry Peterson, the bank’s CEO, said in the release. 

“His accomplishments were magnified during the following two years and were a significant determinant to the bank’s … growth during a time of unprecedented economic challenge,” Peterson added. 

Before joining Pacific West, Wessling was CFO at Premier Community Bank.
