Gene Dunford joined Umpqua Bank 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 built a book of business that easily exceeded Umpqua’s initial three-year lending goal. His rapid success in helping Umpqua establish a growing presence in L.A. has been a catalyst for the bank’s continued commercial business growth across the region.

Dunford focuses on cashflow and asset-based lending, including senior financing for working capital, plant and equipment acquisition, M&A, recapitalization and private equity deals. He has positioned Umpqua in strategic syndicated and club deals with large U.S. and international banks covering some of L.A.’s primary core industries.
