Our Approach

Joe Burlingame

Vice President
Regional Business Banking Manager
Walla Walla
  • B.S., Agricultural Business Management, minor in Crop & Soil Science, Oregon State University

Joe is the banker you need to know if you’re a farmer or rancher. Growing up in a family rooted in agriculture provided Joe with a first-hand perspective of running a farm operation. Joe was drawn to the business side of agriculture while in college. For more than 15 years he has been providing business counsel and financial services to small business and farm owners in the greater Walla Walla Valley. In 2023, Joe was promoted to Regional Business Banking Manager overseeing the Walla Walla Business Advisor lending team and the continued growth of lending portfolios across all regions.

At Baker Boyer since 2011, Joe specializes in commercial lending with a focus on small business and agriculture. He and his team take great care and pay attention to every detail providing clients with best-in-class financial solutions and guidance. Joe and his team also connect their clients with the experts on the D.S. Baker Advisors team to help build and preserve their personal and family legacies.

Outside of the bank, Joe is an active community member. He is the past president of the Blue Mountain Humane Society. If Joe isn’t tinkering in his shop, you’ll probably find him on the golf course.
