Jeff Baker

Senior Business Lender, VP
"Every loan I do is my favorite one. Until the next one!"

As Craft3’s sole Business Lender in Bend, Jeff covers a lot of ground. He’s very active in the local business community, serving on Boards for City of Bend Core Area, Prineville Economic Development for Central Oregon, High Desert Food and Farm Alliance, Mosaic Medical, and the Latino Community Association.

“It’s important to me personally to give back to my community. Working at Craft3 lets me bring that personal value to work. I get to make loans that matter for reasons beyond profitability, and I get to create solutions with the lending team that are beneficial for everyone.”

Born and raised in Grants Pass, Oregon, Jeff joined Craft3 in 2017 after a long career with banks of all sizes. He moved to Central Oregon in 2007 and enjoys the outdoors and spending time with friends and family and his dogs.
