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.”

  • U.S. deficit to dip in 2015 as era of dramatic declines ends - CBO
    The U.S. budget deficit will decline slightly to $468 billion (310 billion pounds) this fiscal year, the lowest level since President Barack Obama took office, congressional forecasters said on Monday in a report heralding the end of a brief period of dramatically shrinking red ink. The deficit, down from the $1 trillion-plus levels of Obama's first four years and a $483 billion gap in fiscal 2014, will stay largely flat in 2016, then begin to march upward due to rising costs for debt and caring for fast-retiring Baby Boomers. Estimates by the Congressional Budget Office kick off what promises to be a contentious budget debate in Washington. Republicans now in control of Congress seek to eliminate deficits within 10 years with cuts to social safety net programs while lowering tax rates and boosting military spending.
