VP, Commercial Relationship Manager
Mike Webb has spent much of his career helping to ensure a good quality of life in Florence, the community he’s grown to love.
Raised in Corvallis and with a degree from Oregon State University, Mike moved to Florence in 1988 to take a job in retail management before switching to a sales position at Oregon Pacific Bank. He worked his way up to become a Vice President and Commercial Relationship Manager.
Mike loves Florence’s small-town feel, especially his five-minute commute—he jokes that when the coastal getaway gets busy with summer tourists, his drive to work can stretch to 6 minutes.
“You get to know everyone in the community,” he says. “It’s a nice place to raise your kids.”
Mike is involved with several civic and service organizations, including serving since 2005 on the board of the Western Lane Ambulance District, which provides emergency medical services across 1,000 square miles of Lane County.
He’s also part of the Florence Rotary Club, Florence Urban Renewal Committee, and the Siuslaw Vision Project—which looks to formulate long-range goals for the community.
In his free time, he takes advantage of the community’s moderate weather and enjoys year-round golf. He also likes bowling and bicycling.
Through his job at OPB, Mike also plays a role in helping to support the community. An example would be the bank’s involvement in helping local businesses secure Paycheck Protection Program loans during the COVID-19 pandemic. That effort infused $13 million into the local community and helped support roughly 1,100 jobs, Mike says.
“Our interest is really to keep Florence going,” he says. “We’re truly a community bank, where we make decisions locally. We work with our clients to find an answer to their problems.”
