Martin joins RCU’s senior leadership to drive strategy for community programs

SANTA ROSA, CA (January 3, 2019) — Matt Martin has been promoted to senior vice president of community and government relations for Redwood Credit Union (RCU). Since joining RCU as a vice president in 2017, Martin has overseen the credit union’s community outreach programs and the RCU Community Fund (RCUCF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports free financial literacy and wellness programs, and local disaster relief efforts. He also oversees government relations and credit union advocacy.

In his new role, Martin will serve on RCU’s senior leadership team, helping to drive strategy and enhance community involvement and social impact. He will continue to be instrumental in building community programs in Sonoma, Marin, Napa, Mendocino, San Francisco and Lake counties, and he’ll represent credit union issues before local, state, and federal government representatives.

Prior to joining RCU, Martin served as chief executive officer of Social Advocates for Youth (SAY), an organization that helps at-risk youth with housing, counseling, and career training. Before joining SAY, he served as director of operations for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Petaluma. Martin is a graduate of Roger Williams University in Rhode Island.

“Matt’s passion to serve our members and communities is inspirational,” said Brett Martinez, RCU President and CEO. “Matt has brought a new level of professionalism and structure to our community department, and was instrumental in managing the North Bay Fire Relief Fund. We look forward to his leadership in reaching greater levels of impact and support for our communities.”
