Bank of the Pacific has hired Dustin Bruland as its Ferndale branch manager.
Bruland has been in the banking industry since 1999 supervising daily branch operations, as well as back office processing. He takes the place of Yvonne Gasparetti, who moved with her husband to Texas last March.
Bruland is a lifetime resident of north Whatcom County and enjoys spending time with his family while outdoors, gardening, camping, fishing, and hiking. He has also worked with North County Young Life and with United Way of Whatcom County on the 2011 Campaign.
“I am excited to be joining a solid northwest community bank that has the same mission, vision and values I believe in,” Bruland said in a May 22 press release.
As branch manager, he will be responsible for the day-to-day operations as well as consumer and light commercial lending services.
