SELCO Undergoes Major Internal Restructuring

In one of the most significant restructurings in its 85-year history, SELCO Community Credit Union recently completed a realignment of many of its internal roles and responsibilities following a thorough analysis and audit of its operations. The restructuring is intended to further leverage existing talents within the company, achieve even greater efficiency in operations, and allow SELCO to build upon its outstanding reputation for member service.

“When you’ve been around for as long as SELCO has, you understand that quality growth and change are not only inevitable, they are also critical components to the long-term success of any organization,” said Bob Newcomb, President and CEO. “While this internal restructuring will make us even more strategic, efficient, and effective as a credit union, it will also further enhance SELCO’s ability to uphold our mission of improving our members’ social and economic position.”

Founded in 1936, SELCO has undergone a number of restructurings as the company has grown from its humble roots as a credit union for Lane County teachers and school employees into one of the state’s largest credit unions, with $2.5 billion in assets and 142,000 members across 27 Oregon counties.

While many of these changes happened organically over the years, the current restructuring is a deliberate effort to prioritize forward-looking growth strategies. It is also a reflection of the company’s confidence in its team members, and coincides with SELCO’s plans to consolidate personnel in its new corporate headquarters over the coming months.

A complete list of notable changes from the current realignment can be found below, but the realignment largely affects SELCO’s Senior Management, Member Experience, Human Resources, Finance & Operations, Information Services & Technology, and Marketing teams.

“We believe that evolving to meet members’ changing needs, operating efficiently, and recognizing outstanding team members for their contributions help set SELCO apart,” said Newcomb. “I’m proud of where our team has taken us. Thanks to their commitment and leadership, we can look forward to serving members another 85 years and beyond.”
