PORTLAND, OREGON, US, February 22, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Pacific West Bancorp (PWBK) announced today that their CEO, Terry Peterson was named a top executive of the year in the CEO category by the Portland Business Journal. The Executives of the Year awards are selected by a panel of outside judges and identify leaders whose guidance and management has led to exceptional performance during the 2023 calendar year.

“PWB’s vision when we were founded in 2004 was that, as business owners ourselves, we saw a need for local banking that focuses on client relationships,” said Peterson. “This award comes during our 20th anniversary year and as I look back at our progress, I can honestly say it is an honor to serve our local communities, businesses, and nonprofits. Trust and loyalty are the cornerstones of our success, and I appreciate the recognition on behalf of our entire team.”

The award recognizes Peterson’s leadership in growing PWB with an expansion into Southwest Washington, and the addition of a digital strategy that partners technology and banking as well as significant contributions and support for local communities and social impact organizations.

Peterson was pivotal in growing PWB from a $60 million Bank in 2018, with a capital raise in December 2018 to $320 million as of year-end 2023. In 2023 PWB expanded services into Southwest Washington with the opening of its waterfront Vancouver office. Also, in 2023, PWB launched a digital strategy with four brand partners, increasing the Bank’s growth and reach.
