Riverview Credit Union, Inc. was granted State Charter on March 20, 1968. The officers and organizing officials canvassed all employees of the Union Carbide Corporation, Mining and Metals Plant to join the credit union for 25 cents. Members were encouraged to keep their deposits in a share account so that money could be loaned to other members in need.
In June of 1968 Pearl Fornnarino was appointed as Manager/CEO of RCU. Her husband George was also part of this team. George served on the Board of Directors from 1968 to 1972 as Treasurer.
In the beginning years it was not uncommon to have members drop off membership cards and deposits at the Fornnarino home. The basement of their home became a temporary office until Union Carbide granted Riverview office space to conduct business.
In April of 1977 Cheryl Fornnarino-Reeder joined forces with her mother and was hired at RCU as a Clerk. For seven years RCU had the mother and daughter team working together for the membership until Pearl retired in 1984. Cheryl was then appointed as Manager/CEO and carried on the tradition.
In 1996 Riverview constructed a 3,800 square foot building in Belpre, Ohio where it still stands today. Riverview received Washington County Community Charter in December of 2000.
Cheryl Fornnarino-Reeder continued to lead RCU until 2004 when she retired after 27 years of service. She then became an active Board Member of the credit union and maintained that position till 2012.
