Advantis Credit Union President and CEO Bob Corwin announces retirement

PORTLAND, OR (January 23, 2020) — Advantis Credit Union President and CEO Bob Corwin today announced his plan to retire by summer 2020. For the past seven years, Corwin has led Advantis, now Oregon’s fifth largest credit union with over 77,000 members and $1.5 billion in assets.

A credit union industry veteran, Bob began his career at the former Tektronix Credit Union, now known as First Tech Federal Credit Union. Over the years he grew his career and held a series of senior leadership positions at First Tech and in 2008 was appointed CEO of Meritrust Credit Union in Kansas. Bob returned back to his home state of Oregon, joining Advantis as President and CEO in 2012. Along with asset and membership growth, under Corwin’s leadership Advantis grew from five branches to nine, adopted a new online banking platform along with several other technology improvements, and greatly improved its strategic planning and implementation process.

“It’s been my honor to lead Advantis during a period of substantial member and asset growth,” said Corwin. “All that we’ve accomplished is a credit to the employees of Advantis, and their commitment to acting as passionate advocates for our members. I could not be more proud of what Advantis has accomplished, and I’m looking forward to watching what the credit union will achieve in the future.”

The Advantis Credit Union Board has engaged D. Hilton Associates, Inc. to conduct a national search for Corwin’s successor, which is set to begin immediately. The Board will be considering both internal and external candidates. Corwin will continue to serve as President and CEO until his successor is in place and will work with the Board and executive leadership team to ensure a seamless transition.
