SANTA ROSA, Calif. – Redwood Credit Union has officially appointed Brett Martinez president/CEO. Formerly the executive vice president/chief operating officer, Martinez has been serving as interim president/CEO of the nearly $1 billion credit union for the past seven months since the sudden retirement of former President/CEO William Rayhill. “We are confident that we have made the right choice for the future success of Redwood Credit Union,” said RCU Board Chair Robert Wieck. “He has demonstrated the leadership, strategic vision, communication skills, and team orientation that we view as vital to the credit union’s future. With some 20 years of experience Martinez has served as a senior executive for both the California Credit Union League and Arrowhead Credit Union in San Bernardino, California. He also holds a B.S. and an M.B.A. in Business Administration from California State University/San Bernardino. “I’m excited to have been selected for the position,” said Martinez. “In 2004 we’re rolling out business services, expanding our branch and ATM network, and enhancing our existing product lines-so we’re certainly focused on our future.”
