Brian Yarbrough

With an undergraduate degree in Journalism from the University of Oregon, and over two decades of international and commercial banking experience, Brian Yarbrough brings to his role as Relationship Manager a style he calls "Banking Journalism". By combining his listening and communication skills with a vast knowledge of business banking, Brian is an excellent resource for business owners looking to grow their business sustainably and responsibly.

Brian began his banking career in 1997 with the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi after spending several years living and working in Japan. After 8 years in international banking with Bank of Tokyo and Washington Mutual Bank, he shifted to a commercial lending and relationship management role. Throughout his career, Brian has had the privilege of working with companies of all shapes and sizes and over a wide spectrum of industries, from small local manufacturing firms to larger distribution companies doing business globally.

A native Oregonian, Brian takes great pride in working closely with local businesses to fully understand the intricacies and challenges of their business and industry. He is particularly drawn to the vibrancy and creativity of Portland, whose sense of shared community and spirit is difficult to find in other small cities.

In his spare time, Brian enjoys outdoor activities, camping, gardening and spending time with his wife and three boys.
