OnPoint Community Credit Union Expands Presence in Portland’s Eastside with New Fremont and Williams Branch

By Erin Moore

OnPoint Community Credit Union opened a new, full-service Portland branch on NE Fremont Street at N. Williams Avenue on August 30, 2018. Located in the walkable and bike-friendly North Williams Corridor, the branch features a bike-thru teller window. This is OnPoint’s second new branch in Portland’s vibrant eastside, having opened its Hawthorne branch in May of 2018.

“We are proud to be a part of the Northeast Portland community and look forward to welcoming neighbors—on foot or by bicycle—to our newest branch,” said OnPoint President and CEO Rob Stuart. “The new branch is the latest example of how we continue to expand our presence in the region to better serve our growing membership.”

The Fremont & Williams Branch, located at 16 NE Fremont Street, is housed in the new Carbon12 building, heralded as one of the most environmentally sustainable residential projects in the world. Carbon12 is currently the tallest mass timber and cross-laminated timber (CLT) building in the United States.

The Fremont & Williams team is led by Branch Manager Elaine Pratt and Assistant Branch Manager Richard Masotto. Pratt will also continue to manage OnPoint’s Lloyd Center Branch. Masotto previously served as assistant branch manager at OnPoint’s Stadium Branch and oversees the day-to-day operations of the Fremont & Williams location.

When the branch opened, Pratt and Masotto presented a $1,000 donation from OnPoint to The ReBuilding Center, a non-profit organization serving Northeast Portland that promotes the use of salvaged and reclaimed building materials as well as offering classes and team building events.

“Giving back and being involved in our community is who we are at OnPoint,” said Pratt. “We look forward to showing that commitment at our newest branch in Northeast Portland.”
