Credit union board changes leadership

Clackamas Federal Credit Union announced the addition of four new board officers this month: Keith Galitz, chairman; Gordon Huiras, vice chairman; David Wimmer, secretary; and Geoff Horton, treasurer.

Clackamas is a not-for-profit, financial cooperative open to membership for people who live, work, worship or attend school in Clackamas County.

“A major distinction of credit unions is that the directors serving on the board are volunteers,” said Andrew Vahrenkamp, Clackamas chief financial officer. “Not only are we thankful for the continual commitment and service that our directors provide, but their leadership and expertise is beyond compare.”

Keith Galitz has been on Clackamas’ board of directors since 2010, with his recent role being vice chairman of the board. A veteran with 35 years in the telecommunication and broadband industry, Galitz started as an attorney before moving to management positions in the “Bell System.” He and his wife live in Canby.

Geoff Horton is a senior audit manager for AKT LLP and holds eight years of experience in public accounting. Horton is a CPA who specializes in providing financial services to manufacturing, financing, healthcare and other small to mid-sized businesses. The native Oregonian volunteers his time with the Special Olympics of Oregon and lives in Wilsonville with his wife and two children.

“My background and day to day routine is working with financial institutions and non-profit organizations — when the opportunity presented itself to be a part of the Clackamas’ Board of Directors it was the perfect fit,” said Horton. “I can apply my day job to a purpose that aligns with my company’s vision to provide an impactful change on our local community.”

Gordon Huiras is a retired Oregon City chief of police. Huiras has been actively involved with Clackamas since 2001 when he became a part of the Supervisory Committee, of which he served as the chair for three years, and has served on the Board of Directors since 2004. He and his wife live in Canby.

David Wimmer is a retired finance director for the city of Oregon City. Wimmer is a Certified Public Accountant and has served on Clackamas’ Board since 2006. He was the Chief Accountant for Washington County for 10 years, and his last 19 years were with the city of Oregon City before retiring in 2012. He is a past president of the Rotary Club of Oregon City and the Oregon City Chamber of Commerce and is still active in both of those organizations. He and his wife Marcia live in Oregon City.

Galitz, Huiras, Wimmer and Horton will join the following current Clackamas board members: Hugh Kalani, a Clackamas River Water board member retired from Clackamas County Department of Development and Transportation; Dana Lord, manager of the Clackamas County Public Health Program; and Barry Rotrock, a former superintendent of Oregon City.
