Washington Banking (WBCO) in Oak Harbor, Wash., has brought on two new directors.

Rhoda Altom and Deborah Gavin will join the boards of Washington Banking and its $1.7 billion-asset Whidbey Island Bank in Coupeville, Wash., the company said Thursday. Washington Banking's board expands to nine directors with their election.

Altom is president of real estate investment and management firms Milestone Properties and Milestone Managers. Gavin retired from Boeing, where she was vice president of finance and controller, in 2010. She previously worked as a special agent with the Treasury Department.

"We are very fortunate to have Rhoda and Debbie joining our board," Tony Pickering, Washington Banking's chairman, said in a press release. "The depth of their financial expertise and broad business experiences will be great additions to the boardroom perspective."

Gavin will join Washington Banking's audit and compensation committees and Alton the audit and corporate governance committees.
