More Additions to the Orion Team!

Please extend a warm welcome to Latoya Brewer, the new Branch Manager at our White Station location.

Latoya Brewer2Latoya comes to Orion with over 8 years experience in retail banking, 5 of which were in management roles.  She began her financial services career as a teller at Suntrust Bank.  Recognized as a leader early on, she was quickly promoted through the ranks, moving to Financial Service Rep, to Assistant Manager, Branch Manager, and finally to Assistant VP.  Under her leadership, her branch was ranked #1 in the entire company.

Latoya attended the University of Tennessee at Martin, earning her BSBA in Finance.  She is active in the community as a participant with Junior Achievement Memphis.

We couldn’t be happier with the addition of Latoya to our team.  Join us in welcoming her aboard and wishing her well!

I’m looking forward to embracing the life of a credit union along with working with a great team of people.

We are also pleased to introduce Richard Vassallo as the Manager of our soon-to-open Medical District Branch.

Richard Vassallo2Richard is a 19 year veteran in Memphis-area retail banking.  He brings a heavy background in sales management to Orion, which includes VP Branch Manager roles at Cadence Bank (9 years), First American National Bank/AM SouthBank (5 years), and Regions (5 years).  His experience is enhanced by his B.S. in Business Administration from California State University in Sacramento.

Richard will spend the coming months rotating among our 9 existing branches until our new location at 821 Poplar opens in the Spring of 2016.

We’re excited about entering a new neighborhood in Memphis, and to have Richard help lead our growth!

I’m looking forward to the unique opportunity and challenge of building, developing, and growing a new branch. Additionally, getting to know our members and deepening our relationships.
