Umpqua Private Bank Expands into San Francisco, Appoints Shane Hiller to Lead Growth

PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Umpqua Bank, a subsidiary of Umpqua Holdings Corporation (NAS: UMPQ) , is expanding its Private Bank division into the San Francisco region. The company has hired Shane Hiller, an industry veteran with more than 20 years of wealth management experience, as senior vice president and market leader. Hiller will be responsible for building Umpqua Private Bank's team in the region and for delivering its high-touch, personally customized offerings to clients in the Bay Area and beyond.

Umpqua Private Bank builds customized investment solutions for clients with more than $3 million in net worth and $1 million in investable assets while delivering the company's trademark customer experience. The Private Bank's expansion into the Bay Area reflects increasing demand for an integrated approach to wealth management in the region, and follows successful forays into the Portland and Seattle markets.

"The Bay Area is a hub for innovative companies and individuals, and is a great fit for Umpqua's unique approach to banking. As we prepare to open our flagship store in San Francisco's financial district, we're excited to provide clients with integrated private banking, retail and commercial services," said Kelly Johnson, executive vice president, wealth management. "It's a pleasure to have a regional leader with Shane's depth and diversity of experience on board, and we look forward to his success building a regional team and growing our Private Bank presence as a whole."

Hiller's appointment in San Francisco is part of a series of strategic moves made by the company to solidify its presence in the Bay Area, including the opening of a flagship store in San Jose, and its 2012 acquisition of Circle Bank. These moves have enabled Umpqua to offer a comprehensive suite of community banking, commercial lending, home lending and business banking services to local consumers and businesses. A flagship store in San Francisco's financial district is slated to open next month, and will mark Umpqua Bank's eighth store in the region.

Before joining Umpqua, Hiller was director at Citi Private Bank. His career also included senior wealth management positions at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, Wells Fargo Private Bank, and Bank of America. He currently serves on the committee of the Notre Dame des Victories School Buildings and Grounds, and is an active member of the San Francisco Apartment Association.
