Dort Financial Announce New CEO Brian Waldron
Dort Financial Credit Union announces the appointment of Brian Waldron as their next Chief Executive Officer. Waldron will assume the responsibilities on March 18, 2022, and will succeed Vicki Hawkins, who is retiring in April.
“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," said Waldron, who looks forward to moving to the Grand Blanc area with his wife of 20 years, Alicia, and their three boys. "Coming back to Michigan after more than a decade away is like coming home.”
“I am honored to be joining Dort Financial Credit Union, and I am thankful for the Board of Directors for allowing me the opportunity," he continued. "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 Financial 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 SVP of Lending/Chief Lending Officer at Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union ($6.4B assets) in Poughkeepsie, NY. Previously held positions include AVP at Universal 1 Credit Union and Chief Lending Officer at Scott Credit Union.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors, we welcome Brian Waldron to Dort Financial Credit Union and look forward to a collaborative partnership in maintaining our current success and taking advantage of the market and community opportunities,” said Board Chair Wayne Natzke.Go to main navigation
