Rod has been in lending for 26 years, 20 of those years in mortgage specifically. Rod started his career in Alaska after attending Southern Oregon State (1985-1990) “I started just like everyone else did 20 years ago. My boss handed me a FHA programs and guidelines book that was about 4 inches thick, a phone and a couple numbers to call.” While in Alaska, Rod went from being a loan originator to helping open a mortgage department for a large Alaska Credit Union. He managed a 20 person branch for one of the nation’s largest lenders and ultimately managing mortgage sales for the entire state of Alaska for the same large lender.
In his new role, Rod is responsible for The Commerce Bank footprint for Oregon and Washington. Building his team and relationships among the real estate community are a challenge he welcomes. We look forward to helping our Commerce Bank customers with any of their residential mortgage needs in the future.
Rod is an avid golfer and has been a member of Columbia Edgewater Country Club since moving to Oregon from Alaska in 2012. Rod has 3 children and enjoys spending his weekends watching them compete in various sports and activities.
