Advantis Credit Union Hires New Chief Financial Officer

Advantis Credit Union last week announced the hire of Greg Spear to fill the role of Chief Financial Officer. Spear has over 24 years of experience serving in the role of CFO at both community banks and credit unions. He joined the Advantis team following his time at Unitus Community Credit Union where he also served as Chief Financial Officer. Spear brings expertise in overseeing all financial aspects of the organization as well as a collaborative leadership style that empowers those around him. 

“Greg is passionate about credit unions and the important role they play in supporting local communities. But beyond that he is also dedicated to supporting and developing people and building strong teams,” said Jason Werts, Advantis President and CEO. “Greg’s collaborative leadership style will be a great addition to the Advantis team. We are thrilled to welcome him aboard.” 

Spear filled the role following the retirement of well-respected leader, Laurie Wilson, who served as CFO for nearly two decades and helped Advantis become a leader among Oregon credit unions.

 “I know I have some big shoes to fill, but I’m looking forward to continuing the important work Laurie has done,” said Spear. “This organization has a very bright future, and I am proud and excited to be a part of it.”
