CEO Transition Announcement

After 37 years with OCU Chuck Garner, CEO retired on May 1st. Sam Launius has been named the new CEO.

CEO Transition

When Oregonians Credit Union was formed in 2005, the 3 CEOs of the merged credit unions were retained by the OCU Board.  The plan was to have an enviable management succession plan covering the future.

The first CEO after the merger was Mike Cline who was the CEO of the former Oregon Central Credit Union. Chuck Garner, the CEO of the former Oregonian Federal Credit Union succeeded Mike in early 2008.  Chuck had served as the CEO of Oregonian FCU since 1981.  Prior experience included two other credit unions and he served as a branch manager for a national consumer finance company for almost 7 years before joining credit unions.  Chuck’s total years in consumer finance was just shy of 45 years!

Before the formation of OCU, Sam Launius was the CEO of the former Mountain View Federal Credit Union, a position he held for more than 12 years. Since the merger over 12 years ago Sam has served as VP of Operations where he was instrumental in helping to make the merger a success, and since 2008, the position of EVP.  He has accumulated over 30 years in financial service positions.

Chuck Garner summed up Sam’s career: “Sam is well positioned to be Oregonians’ CEO.  He has served in many capacities during his career both here at OCU and in past positions.  He is well aware of OCU’s Board plans and goals for serving the membership, volunteers and staff and the issues that face the industry, and has proven he is capable to take the next step.”

We thank Chuck for his leadership over the years and wish him the best in retirement!
