Umpqua Bank added Dave Ericksen to its Pacific Northwest middle market banking leadership team as senior vice president and middle market director.

“Businesses have persevered through tremendous disruption and many have adapted in ways that position them for growth as the economy stabilizes. A trusted, capable banking partner has never been more critical to their continued success,” Richard Cabrera, executive vice president and head of Umpqua Bank’s middle market banking division, said. “Dave brings uncommon expertise and skill to our team of bankers, and his addition illustrates the high priority Umpqua has placed on helping our customers gain a competitive advantage through periods of both economic expansion and contraction.”

Before joining Umpqua Bank, Ericksen most recently served as an enterprise banker at Key Bank. He also previously served at U.S. Bank.

“Dave is a highly-regarded banker with long-standing connections to our region’s industries, economy and companies,” Jonathan Dale, executive vice president and Pacific Northwest executive of middle market banking for Umpqua Bank, said. “Throughout his career, Dave has established trusted relationships with middle market business owners, helping them finance growth, optimize working capital and automate cash flow. His leadership experience and forward-thinking approach to understanding a business’ vision and objectives will complement Umpqua’s high-touch client experience.”

During his career, Ericksen has held licenses as a Certified Treasury Professional, an Oregon Life & Health Insurance professional and a Series 6 and 63.
