Anatomy Of Clearwater Credit Union

Clearwater rises above the competition in its crowded Montana market with a strong commitment to environmental protection, financial inclusion, member centricity, and full transparency.

Clearwater Credit Union ($899.0M, Missoula, MT) takes its name from the pristine waters that crisscross the state. Like a swelling river, Clearwater has expanded from three counties to 20 across the western side of the state during the past decade and has become one of the nation’s top-performing credit unions by nearly every performance metric. CEO Jack Lawson attributes Clearwater’s success to the credit union’s move to values-based banking in 2017. Clearwater’s strategy is to rise above the competition in the crowded Montana market with a strong commitment to environmental protection, financial inclusion, member centricity, and full transparency.
