Bridge Bank announced an expansion of its geographical presence with the opening of a new office in Seattle, along with the hiring of technology banking veteran Tom Reimer as senior vice president. This expansion will enable Bridge Bank to strengthen its existing relationships in the Pacific Northwest while accelerating the growth of its technology banking group portfolio in the region.

"We're committed to growing in top tech markets across the nation," said Dan Myers, chief executive officer of Bridge Bank. "Seattle is a desirable market because of its rich, long history of being the birthplace and home to some of the country's top innovation companies. The city is still experiencing significant growth as new technology companies are launched there allowing them to draw from a strong talent base."

"Although our office is new to the Pacific Northwest, we are not," added Mike Lederman, senior vice president and western region director of Bridge Bank's technology banking group. "Our technology banking team has had a longstanding presence and solid relationships with clients in this region going back more than a decade. We're excited to have an official presence here and look forward to building deeper networks and relationships in the community."

Bridge Bank's Seattle office will be led by Tom Reimer, who has over 20 years of experience in technology banking, including working with venture capitalists, attorneys, and CPAs. Prior to joining Bridge Bank, he served as senior vice president in the technology banking group at Square 1 Bank where he managed the Northwest region. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and Finance from Washington State University.

"I'm delighted to be joining the technology banking group at Bridge Bank," said Reimer. "The market here in Seattle is ripe with opportunity and I look forward to being instrumental in shaping the continued growth of Bridge Bank in the Pacific Northwest."
