Rockland Federal Credit Union is a relatively young financial institution, having been established in 1985. RFCU has not always traveled an easy road: in 1994, the Credit Union was in conservatorship when a new CEO, Thomas White, was brought on board. White had developed a reputation for saving troubled credit unions, and his mission was to take charge and restore the credit union to health. At its low point, RFCU's assets had shrunk to $189 million; by early 2004, assets had grown to $610 million. RFCU is currently Massachusetts’ third largest credit union, with nearly 180,000 members and assets in excess of $1.6 billion.
