A third-generation banker with nearly four decades of experience, Gary recently retired from Wells Fargo Bank, where he held a variety of leadership roles over the course of his 32-year tenure. Gary brings extensive experience in Investor Commercial Real Estate lending, having most recently led efforts to build relationships with CRE investors across the United States. Prior to that assignment, Orr led Wells Fargo’s middle-market commercial banking teams for the Central Valley, including the Sacramento, Modesto, Stockton and North Valley Markets.
