Pacific Continental in Eugene, Ore., is set to have its first new chief executive in a dozen years.
The $1.5 billion-asset company said in a press release Thursday that Hal Brown will retire at the end of this year. Roger Busse, the company's chief operating officer, will succeed Brown. Busse, who has more than 37 years of banking experience, joined Pacific Continental 11 years ago from U.S. Bank.
Casey Hogan, Pacific Continental's chief credit officer, will succeed Busse as chief operating officer. Damon Rose will succeed Hogan as chief credit officer.
Pacific Continental has 14 branches in Oregon and Washington.
"The hallmark of a great company is its ability to stay focused on a clear strategic vision, maintain a vibrant company culture, and consistently deliver on commitments to its clients, shareholders, employees and to the communities it serves," Busse said in the release. "The executive management team that has operated under Hal's and the board's leadership is committed to these same high standards, and I could not be more pleased than to lead this dedicated and talented group of proven professionals."
