Paul Mayer

In addition to being a member of Bank’s Executive Management team, Paul is the State Credit Administrator for The Commerce Bank of Oregon. In this role, Paul works with the Bank’s Relationship Managers to structure, approve, and administer credit that meets both the needs of the Bank’s clients and the Bank’s need for a safe and sound loan portfolio.

A native Oregonian, Paul was born and raised in Portland. He received his undergraduate degree from Willamette University and two graduate degrees from Claremont Graduate school.

Paul began his banking career with Security Pacific National Bank in Los Angeles, where he received his banking training and worked in the Bank’s corporate banking group and capital markets group. Wanting to gain middle market lending experience, Paul joined Community Bank in Pasadena where he was a senior lender, credit administrator, and a member of the Bank’s management team. Paul returned to Portland in 1994 to raise a family and joined US Bank, where he held credit administration positions for a variety of US Bank’s lending groups.

Paul joined the newly formed Commerce Bank of Oregon in 2006, finding the Bank’s mission and culture compelling.

In his free time, Paul enjoys spending time with his family, snow skiing, reading, and working on an older home in Southeast Portland.
