CFCU hires Johnson as new CEO

Chetco Federal Credit Union (CFCU) recently announced it has hired Diane Johnson, a nationally recognized credit union consultant, as its new president and CEO.

The announcement was made by Board Chairman Jim Nelson. “Diane is one of the best known experts in this industry and we are very fortunate that she is available and likes the coast. Many of our staff have already worked with Diane, or her husband Tom Glatt, over the past few years when they have worked with CFCU as consultants. There’s no other way to put it, the board is thrilled!”


CFCU recently announced the retirement of Stan Baron and his return to his native New Jersey. “More than a decade ago we faced some challenges and we found the right person then, Stan Baron. Since that time we have more than doubled in size, added Coos County to our membership base, added two new branches including the impressive new Crescent City facility, and for most of that time we maintained an ROA far in excess of our peers,” continued Nelson. “But over the last three years the entire financial industry has seen tremendous change. Now we find ourselves facing a new set of challenges, and, once again, we’ve found the right person to lead us.”

“The current economic environment is unlike anything economists have ever seen,” Ms. Johnson told the board. “Coupled with increased regulatory scrutiny and market uncertainty, credit union leadership faces challenges at every turn.”

According to Nelson, “Diane has more than 30 years of financial and entrepreneurial experience. She joins an experienced team of service professionals to continue the distinguished heritage of CFCU. Having someone with Diane’s background, contacts and skill set will be just what Chetco needs to be able to continue providing world class service to its members.”

Johnson, originally from California, has been in the financial services industry since she was hired as a teller in 1965. In 1977 she was founding partner of her own consulting firm which served hundreds of clients throughout the financial community. Diane sold her firm in 2001 and has been a resource to her credit union clients, including CFCU, since that time. Most recently she was CEO of CUMAnet, LLC. CUMAnet, LLC provided mortgage services to more than 50 financial institutions nationwide.

Between them, Diane and her husband have four grown children. Diane and Tom are newcomers to southern Oregon, but have spent many years on the Pacific Coast. Nelson concluded, “We hope our members will join us in welcoming Diane and Tom to CFCU family.”

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
