Chetco Federal Credit Union President and CEO Stan Baron
Chetco Federal Credit Union (CFCU) recently announced the retirement of President and CEO Stan Baron, effective May 1.

Chairman of the Board, Dr. Jim Nelson said, “We hate to see Stan go, but understand his desire to return to the East Coast and spend more time with his family. We will miss him, but we have his phone number.”

Mr. Baron came to CFCU in June of 2000 after more than 30 years in the credit union industry; nearly 20 of those years as a president and CEO. He oversaw the increase of CFCU’s assets from roughly $100 million to a high of more than $370 million, and the expansion of its service area to include Coos County.

During his tenure CFCU also took a more active role in the communities it serves with an emphasis on assisting small businesses and those who are often denied access to financial services by national and larger financial institutions. CFCU also began routinely sponsoring a number of community activities from recreational youth teams to the Community Food Bank and Meals on Wheels.

Particular attention has been given to the youth of the communities. CFCU provides scholarships, financial literacy training in schools, and operates branches in 14 of the area’s schools. CFCU’s Dollar Dog program in local elementary schools is well regarded and recognized nationally.

“It has been a great honor and privilege to serve our members and the communities in Curry, Coos and Del Norte counties,” Mr. Baron said. “I will certainly miss the many, many people I have gotten to know here, but after more than 40 years in the credit union industry, it is time to spend more time with the grandchildren. I want to especially thank the Board of Directors and staff of CFCU for their hard work and support.”

The Board of Directors is currently working on determining Mr. Baron’s successor. In the meantime, EVP (Executive Vice President) and General Counsel Peter Spratt will serve as Interim CEO.

For additional information or questions contact Peter Spratt at 541-469-7700.

CFCU is a community- chartered credit union, dedicated to serving members in the communities of Coos and Curry Counties, and Del Norte County. CFCU has provided 51 years of service to more than 31,000 members; with eight primary branch locations as well as 14 youth branches in area schools and $356 million in assets.

  • Activist investor Peltz asks DuPont to split into two
    Activist investor Nelson Peltz's Trian Fund Management LP, which holds a $1.6 billion stake in DuPont , called on the chemical conglomerate to separate its high-growth agriculture and other businesses from units that generate strong cash flows. DuPont should split itself into two companies, one holding the company's agriculture, nutrition and health and industrial biosciences divisions, Trian Fund said in a Sept. 16 letter to DuPont's board released on Wednesday. DuPont has also announced a $5 billion share repurchase program. "While we applaud the announced spin-off of Performance Chemicals, the Fresh Start initiative and the $5 billion share buy back authorization, we believe strongly that, by themselves, these moves are not enough to optimize shareholder value," Trian Fund said.
  • China adds stimulus with reported $81 billion bank injection
    China's central bank joined its European counterpart in boosting liquidity to address weakening growth, underscoring a divergence in direction among the world's biggest economies as the U.S. The People's Bank of China is injecting 500 billion yuan ($81 billion) into the nation's largest banks, according to a government official familiar with the matter, signaling the deepest concern yet with an economic slowdown. China's credit expansion builds on targeted measures to shore up growth while stopping short of broad-based stimulus seen in the U.S. By attaching a three-month term to its injection, China is taking a step down that path while maintaining control of a process designed to fuel demand for credit in an already debt-laden economy.
