BARON APPOINTED CREDIT UNION CHIEF

Stanley L. Baron, a native of the East Coast, has taken the reins of Chetco Federal Credit Union.

Baron replaces Bob Dugan, former president and chief executive officer, who resigned earlier this year.

The new credit union chief began working June 12 after moving from New Jersey where he was president of a credit union.

After earning his bachelors degree in business from Montclair State University in New Jersey, Baron went into the financial institution business.

One of his goals was to move to the West Coast after he graduated from college, Baron said. But he encountered obstacles that kept in on the East Coast.

He got married and he and his wife, Tina, spent the next 30 years working in financial institutions and raising three children, who are now 27, 25 and 21, Baron said. The past 20 years has been serving as head of credit unions.

Now that the children are on their own, the couple decided to fulfill their dream of a westward move.

My wife and I decided to leave the rat race because the rats were winning, Baron said.

My wife and I had a short list of areas we wanted to relocate to, Baron said. These places they had visited on vacations. After learning about the opening at Chetco Federal Credit Union, he researched the financial institution and I liked everything about CFCU.

Not only is Baron happy to be working at the credit union, he finds the area a place to exercise his hobbies, which include golf, river fishing and visiting museums.

At the credit union, Baron hopes to promote his philosophy.

A credit union should never lose sight of the purpose for which they were created, Baron said, to serve the members financial needs.

I believe CFCU has the potential to be the primary financial institution for everyone in Curry and Del Norte counties, Baron said.

  • Buffett looks to succession, signals future growth problem
    In his 50 years at the helm of Berkshire Hathaway Inc, Warren Buffett has transformed a failing textile company into a sprawling conglomerate that has vastly outperformed most of the rest of corporate America. In the 84-year-old's annual shareholder letter released on Saturday, Buffett said Berkshire has grown so large - 751,000 times its original net worth per share - that the future pace of gains "will not come close" to those of the past. "The numbers have become too big," Buffett wrote. Within 10 to 20 years, Buffett said, Berkshire's girth could require whoever then runs the Omaha, Nebraska-based company to consider steps he has resisted, such as paying dividends or conducting "massive" share repurchases.
  • Herbalife cuts pay of CEO Johnson 36 percent after missed targets
    Herbalife Ltd (HLF.N) cut the pay of Chief Executive Michael Johnson 36 percent for 2014 after the nutrition and weight loss company failed to meet performance goals set for him and other top executives, according to a securities filing on Friday. Herbalife said Johnson, who is also chairman, received total compensation of $6.73 million last year, down from $10.5 million in 2013, mainly because he did not receive the incentive plan compensation of $3.7 million he got the prior year. Herbalife has been closely watched since activist investor William Ackman accused the company of running a pyramid scheme in 2012, while rival investor Carl Icahn became the company's biggest owner in 2013. Herbalife, being investigated by state and federal regulators, has denied Ackman's charges.
  • Jobs report may test market's complacency
    The U.S. stock market has been quiet this week - too quiet. Wall Street has traded in a tight range of late, with both volatility and trading volumes drying up as the earnings season winds down and Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's recent Congressional testimony delivered no surprises. About 238,000 jobs are expected to have been added in February, according to the non-farm payroll report that will be released on Friday, down from the 257,000 added in January. "Economic data will be the biggest driver of market moves over the next month, and the key one is the jobs report," said Jim McDonald, chief investment strategist at Chicago-based Northern Trust Asset Management.
