Bank of Marin has hired Matthew Bartlett as a Vice President and Commercial Loan Officer, with specific expertise in lending to the wine industry. Bartlett will join the Commercial Banking Group led by Beth Reizman and will be based in the Bank’s Napa and Santa Rosa offices. Bank of Marin currently works with several customers in the wine industry including The Other Guys, Highway 12 Winery and Vineyard, Pina Napa Valley and Sonoma Wine Accessories, which acquired International Wine Accessories earlier this year.
Prior to joining Bank of Marin, Bartlett was a Senior Loan Officer with American Ag Credit’s North Coast area. Bartlett graduated from California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo and is currently enrolled in Sonoma State University’s Wine Business MBA program.
“We are very excited to have Matt join Bank of Marin’s growing team of wine lending experts as we continue to expand our client base in the wine industry,” said Beth Reizman, Senior Vice President, Commercial Loan Group. “Lending to this industry is complex and requires intimate knowledge of how these businesses operate. Matt has the right combination of experience and familiarity with winery financing to be a great fit for our customers and for the Bank.”
