Josh Williams
CBO & Head of Partnerships at Seattle Bank

Profile

Josh Williams is Executive Vice President/Chief Banking Officer and Head of Partnerships at Seattle Bank. Josh joined Seattle Bank in 2014 and now leads Partner Banking, collaborating with fintechs, marketplaces and brands to integrate financial services into their customer experience. 

Josh leads with an exceptional focus on understanding client needs and surpassing their service expectations. Always aiming to advance his clients’ progress toward their financial and business goals, Josh directed the development of Seattle Bank’s private and commercial banking business lines designed for ultra-high-net-worth families and closely held businesses. He has over 20 years of experience, serving as a resource to clients with complex banking needs, building and leading successful teams, and formulating and executing organizational strategy. 

Technology investment and innovation are central to Seattle Bank’s business strategy. In early 2020, the bank became one of a small number of financial institutions nationwide to convert to an open-API, cloud-based tech platform. As a member of the leadership team, Josh helped lead the digital transformation in client experience and Seattle Bank’s development partnership with Google for the Plex Account. He now heads Partner Banking, including embedded banking and banking-as-a-service solutions, to enable fintechs and non-financial companies to offer flexible payment, credit and deposit services to their customers. 

Prior to joining Seattle Bank, Josh held leadership positions at Wells Fargo, most recently as Senior Global Banking Consultant. Josh earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and political science from Macalester College and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Washington Foster School of Business. He is also a graduate of the Pacific Coast Banking School. Josh serves as chair of the Mt. Baker Community Club’s Martin Luther King, Jr., Scholarship Fund.
