1st Security Bank expanded its commercial lending presence in the Puget Sound region with the hiring of Melanie Miller and Marty Markey.

“With the continued growth in the number of commercial banking customers who are entrusting 1st Security Bank with their full banking relationships, it was critical that the bank add two relationship managers with the talent and the dedication to client service that Melanie and Marty embody,” said Chief Lending Officer Dennis O’Leary.

Miller brings 21 years of banking expertise to 1st Security Bank. She specializes in manufacturers, wholesalers, contractors and technology businesses.

Markey began her career in the financial industry in 2006 as a regional sales manager at a community bank in Tacoma. In 2013 she joined the commercial banking team at Sterling Bank, later Umpqua. She brings years of banking, lending, sales, relationship growth and management experience to 1st Security Bank.
