Two Oregon CUs call off merger
BEND, Ore. (9/19/11)--The hiring of a new CEO hiring has put on hold merger talks between two Oregon credit unions. After considering a merger, Mid Oregon, with $148 million assets, Bend, Ore., and Northwest Community CU, with $661 million assets, Springfield, Ore., have decided to remain stand-alone organizations, according to a newsletter on Mid Oregon’s website. “NW Community Credit Union was somewhat unexpectedly put in the position of having to select a new CEO and that required their sole focus,” Mid Oregon president/CEO Bill Anderson wrote in the August edition of Member News. “The new CEO hiring has occurred and an important responsibility of their new CEO will be to assimilate into the leadership position of a complex organization. That will take some time. This was a long term strategic opportunity.” Mid Oregon is financially healthy and has “no plans to actively pursue any other mergers at this time,” Anderson wrote. NW Community CU recently hired John Iglesias as its new president/CEO. Iglesias most recently served as the president/CEO of Salal CU, Seattle.
