Magazine: CFCU makes top 100 list

It’s becoming a habit. Chetco Federal Credit Union has been named by Oregon Business magazine as one of The 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon for the third year in a row.

In writing about the 100 Best Companies of 2010, Oregon Business editor Robin Doussard said, “When the going gets tough, The Best get going,” and her final editorial word was, “Especially in hard times, being a great place to work helps your bottom line. It gives you a competitive edge, keeps the best people with you, and in turn those employees give back that heart and soul many times over.”

An inside article noted, “It might not have been the best year for business, with a bad economy hanging on, but you wouldn’t know it by how our 2010 winners treated their employees. ... It’s about inspired leadership, collaboration and caring, along with a healthy dose of fun.”

Stanley J. Baron, president and chief executive officer of the credit union, said, “It’s a great honor to be rated by our employees as one of the best 100 companies to work for. Our success is due to our employees. They are all successful because of their likability.”

Brookings CFCU branch manager Gaylin Beckley, who has worked for the credit union for 10 years, received the 2010 Readers Choice award for Best Boss (See special section inside this issue).

“I love my job,” Beckley said. “I’m one of the luckiest people in the world to get up and come to work with wonderful people. I feel it’s a privilege to work with great people.”

When asked about the major problems being experienced by other financial institutions, Baron said, “One of the reasons we didn’t suffer so badly is because we had no toxic assets. We had no sub-prime mortgages.”

Baron noted, “Everyone is suffering to some degree. We try to provide as much forbearance as we are permitted to provide, and the only reason why I’m here is to serve. We are in excellent condition, but there’s no way to predict the future.”

Chetco Federal Credit Union is a community chartered credit union, dedicated to serving members in the communities of Coos and Curry counties in Oregon and Del Norte County in California, and has provided 52 years of service to more than 30,000 members.

  • Charter Communications nears $55 billion deal for Time Warner Cable
    A deal would create a major rival to Comcast Corp, the biggest operator in the U.S. cable and broadband market, and marks a triumph for Charter, which was rejected by Time Warner Cable just last year. The cash-and-stock deal values Time Warner Cable at $195 per share, according to sources, and comes just one month after Comcast dropped its $45.2 billion merger agreement with Time Warner Cable, clinched in February 2014, over antitrust concerns. A merger of Charter and Time Warner Cable, with other related deals, would eliminate one of the country's top Internet providers and control more than 20 percent of the broadband market, according to data from MoffettNathanson.
  • Fed's Fischer: Too much weight placed on Fed's first rate hike
    U.S. Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said it was "misleading" to give so much importance to the Fed's first interest rate hike since the process of returning to a more normal level will take a few years. Fischer, speaking in Israel, said that while markets largely expect the first rate hike in September, it will be determined by data and not by date. "What we are thinking about is raising the interest rate from zero, which is an ultra expansionary monetary policy to a quarter percent, which is an extremely expansionary monetary policy.
