Solarity Credit Union
$1.5B Assets Under Management
Washington State

Are you a Chief Lending Officer (CLO) looking for an exciting opportunity to work at an innovative, fast-moving organization? Let’s talk! Solarity Credit Union is moving quickly and needs a lending executive with a sales and business development background. Solarity has aggressive goals and is structured to be a major market contender.

We are looking for an executive who is a current CLO with responsibility for sales production. The CLO will oversee the mortgage, commercial, and consumer lending production areas of the credit union. The ideal executive needs a strong mortgage background, secondary real estate sales expertise, and a deep understanding of what it takes to capture a large part of the regional mortgage market. You will grow mortgage lending across a regional area featuring no physical limitations, using state-of-the-art mortgage portfolio digital services, digital leads, personal follow-up and top-tier sales management. Your peers are inspired and motivated to create an environment for you to be successful, and every team member is focused on the company’s commitment to mortgage loan production. A solid commercial lending background is also needed.

The perfect executive has the wherewithal and tenacity to lead others to effective action, sees the organization holistically, and lives the credit union’s values for the greater good of the organization through collaborating, working in a team environment, and being a part of something bigger. The true servant leadership phenomena exist within this executive team.

We seek a high-energy person who knows no barriers to success. Experience, aptitude, and attitude carry more weight than a college degree. Strong interpersonal skills, self-motivation, teamwork, personal accountability, and leadership expertise are necessary personal mastery skills. The Solarity culture encourages the free flow of thoughts and ideas, a communication model that inspires and engages employees, and it is built on a foundation that continually drives vision and strategy. Success comes from a transparent and open culture, collaboration, and an unprecedented investment in personal development.

Solarity is headquartered in the Yakima Valley, which offers the ocean, mountains, wine country, a reasonable cost of living, four seasons, and plenty of sunshine. Compensation is highly competitive and is structured for a large financial institution. Tuition reimbursement, 401K, gym reimbursement, and much more are indicative of the value Solarity sees in high-performing team members. Click here to learn more about the Solarity culture.
