In fact, he’s been working in business development and lending in the Puget Sound banking industry since 2012. He is an alumni of Gonzaga University and has only missed two of their basketball games in six years. John joined Verity in 2018 and works with area businesses to take care of their lending needs. One of John's specialties is working with business groups and chambers throughout the area, including the Real Estate Associates of the Puget Sound. When John's not working or visiting the east side of the state, he gives back to his community by volunteering with local organizations, such as the Big Brother Big Sister Program of Seattle and the Ballard Boys and Girls Club. In his spare time you'll find him outside--hiking, biking, hunting, fishing, snowboarding, rafting or just spending time with family and friends.
