We are proud to announce that Dort Financial Credit Union has selected Brian Waldron as their next Chief Executive Officer.
Brian is looking forward to moving to the Grand Blanc, Michigan area with his wife of 20 years, Alicia, and their three boys. Waldron says, “I grew up in Northwest Ohio but have always rooted for Michigan (you can thank my grandma). I attended Miami University in Oxford, OH, and began my credit union journey in Dayton, OH. Coming back to Michigan after more than a decade away is like coming home.”
Regarding the new role, Waldron states, “I am honored to be joining Dort Financial Credit Union, and I am thankful for the Board of Directors for allowing me the opportunity. I look forward to working with the Board to meet the opportunities and face the challenges ahead. I have always believed in the mission of credit unions and the idea of ‘people helping people’ and making a difference in the lives of their members. I am excited to begin working with the staff at Dort in making a difference in the lives of its current and future members.”
Waldron has served in multiple executive roles. Most recently, he served as Senior Vice President of Lending/Chief Lending Officer at Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union ($6.4B assets) in Poughkeepsie, NY. Previously held positions include Assistant Vice President at Universal 1 Credit Union and Chief Lending Officer at Scott Credit Union.
Client Kindness Thoughts from Brian Waldron
“Working with DDJ Myers was an incredible experience. The entire team is cordial and professional; they are timely in their responses. Deedee and Peter’s knowledge and expertise are incredible; they understand the people and process of interviewing for a high-level executive position. I want to personally thank Deedee for her time and effort in recruiting for this role. I am thankful to have been a candidate and ultimately chosen as CEO.”
