“It is an honor to be listed in the 100 Best Companies to work for in Oregon,” said Stanley J. Baron, president and chief executive officer of the credit union.  “CFCU believes in delivering world-class service to our members and we are only able to do that because of our excellent employees.  They continually demonstrate their dedication and passion – and their votes confirm that CFCU is a great place to be.”
