Umpqua Bank

Gene Dunford is senior managing director of Umpqua Bank’s Los Angeles Corporate Banking Division.  He joined Umpqua Bank in 2016 to establish its new Corporate Banking Division in Los Angeles.

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’s team currently manages approximately $500 million in assets. Dunford focuses on cashflow and asset-based lending, including senior financing for working capital, plant and equipment acquisition, M&A, recapitalization, and private equity opportunities.
