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.

  • Asia stocks hobbled by growth anxiety, China PMI fails to impress
    Asian shares sagged on Thursday after a retreat on Wall Street and falling crude oil prices rekindled investor anxiety over slowing global growth, while a mixed picture on Chinese manufacturing failed to impress markets. Japan's Nikkei share average fell 0.4 percent while MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dropped 0.3 percent. In particular, investors have been rattled by the threat of recession in Europe and the Chinese economy cooling to its weakest in over five years in the third quarter. The latest manufacturing read on China did little to allay those concerns.

  • Exclusive: U.S. stock options markets agree to need for trading halts on big moves
