EUGENE, Ore., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Continental Corporation (Nasdaq: PCBK), the holding company of Pacific Continental Bank, announced today that Jeffrey D. Pinneo was recently elected to serve on the board of directors for both organizations. Pinneo's election to the respective boards expands the number of current directors from seven to eight.
Pinneo, 56, currently serves as CEO of Medical Teams International, a Portland, Oregon-based global health organization helping people affected by disaster, conflict and poverty throughout the world. Prior to joining Medical Teams International in 2012, Pinneo served as the chief executive officer and president of Horizon Air. In June 2010, he retired after serving nearly 29 years with Alaska Air Group companies, Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air. During his tenure with Alaska Air Group, Pinneo guided both organizations through market expansion, revenue growth, extended service reach, and increased brand awareness. Under his leadership, Horizon Air was named the 2007 Regional Airline of the Year by Air Transport World.
While Pinneo is best known for his professional work in the airline industry, he has devoted a great deal of time to widely respected charitable organizations, including Medical Teams International where he has served on the board since 2008. Pinneo has also served on the advisory boards of Seattle Pacific University Center for Integrity in Business, Washington State University College of Business, and Point Loma Nazarene University.
