michael murdoch

A fifth-generation Oregonian, Michael thrives on creativity and the outdoors. Though he has only been in the industry for four years, his passion for financial education, young-professional-engagement, and credit union advocacy can be found in nearly everything he does. 

Michael has primarily held marketing and communication roles within credit unions (he is currently the Communications Specialist at Wauna Credit Union), but his award-winning, hands-on approach extends him well into nearly every aspect of the credit union breadth. 

He graduated from the University of Oregon in 2005 with Theatre and History degrees and also serves on the Northwest Credit Union Association's Awards Committee and Advocacy Sub-Committee.  

"Cooperation is the best educator known." - Alphonse Dejardins
