FORT KENT, Maine (Aug. 17, 2022) – Acadia Federal Credit Union, with eight branches throughout northern and eastern Maine, is pleased to announce that Brian Stoliker was recently promoted from his role as commercial loan manager to Vice President of Risk Management.
In this role, Stoliker will plan and direct the institution-wide development of risk management and loss prevention programs that protect Acadia FCU’s assets. Additionally, he will assure compliance with company policies and procedures and applicable state and federal banking regulations, while ensuring that consumer compliance regulatory requirements are adhered to.
“Brian brings a wealth of knowledge from various positions he has held in the past with the credit union,” said David Desjardins, President / CEO of Acadia FCU. “As Acadia continues to grow and branch out, I’m pleased that he has accepted this latest challenge to lead our risk management department. His experience will be useful as he deals with keeping the credit union compliant with the latest regulations as well as mitigating our losses from fraud and delinquent loans.”
Stoliker joined Acadia FCU in 2007, with 10 years of prior credit union experience under his belt. Over the last 15 years, he has held various positions in collections, compliance, consumer and commercial lending, and management.
“This is an exciting, new challenge in an arena that is always changing,” said Stoliker. “I will certainly miss the direct interactions with members as their commercial lender — and, at times — their personal business adviser. When I first started in the credit union industry, I was in collections. Eventually, security and compliance were added to my duties, so the field of risk management encompasses areas I’m already well-acclimated with.”
Stoliker attended the University of Maine at Fort Kent, where he earned an associate degree in business administration and a bachelor’s degree in business management. In 2002, he received and has maintained his Credit Union Compliance Expert (CUCE) designation.
A lifelong resident of the St. John Valley, Stoliker resides in Madawaska and enjoys spending time with his wife, Christine, their four adult children and extended family, and also fishing and hunting. He also passionately serves his community as a Registered Maine Guide, an Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) for the Madawaska Ambulance Service, and recently retired from the Madawaska Fire Department after 32 years of dedicated service.
