Providence Federal CU announces strategic lending hire

PORTLAND, OR (April 12, 2018) — Providence FCU has announced the strategic hiring of a new AVP of Lending to drive member financial support, and overall membership and asset growth.

An accomplished lending manager, Bryan Jordan joins Providence FCU with more than a decade of banking and credit union experience both in managing loan programs and lending departments.

“We have found an exceptional executive leader who can build upon our legacy of member service and better position us as the financial institution of choice for Providence employees,” said Providence FCU Chief Operations Officer Brett Wooden.

Jordan’s addition comes as the Milwaukie, Ore.-based credit union has already launched two new lending solutions this year. At the start of 2018, a new bike loan was created to provide members immediate access to standard and electric bicycles for commuting to and from work. Additionally, Providence FCU was asked by its employer partner, Providence Health & Services, to develop a Care Giver Loan, which provides a low-interest rate solution for health care employees to gain access to emergency funds while avoid costly “payday loans.”
