Derek Mathison believes that there are no secrets to success but that success is a result of preparation and hard work. Having grown up in a military family, and later going on to be a collegiate athlete, this belief has served as a guiding principle throughout Derek's life and has shaped his approach in helping Credit Union members through critical financial decisions and life events. Derek understands that, regardless of your professional occupation, personal finance is one of life's most sensitive subjects, and he strives to create a comfortable environment that gives members the freedom to voice their needs, concerns and most importantly, their dreams.

Usually the members Derek works with are diligent savers, working to achieve important financial goals, such as providing a quality education for their children or retiring comfortably, but what he finds is that many individuals prolong sitting down with a professional to ensure their efforts and goals are aligned. Derek is a patient listener who is approachable, compassionate, and dedicated to breaking down individual situations and providing need-based recommendations in a way all clients can understand.

Derek's personal values align closely with Delta Community Retirement & Investment Services' philosophy that every story matters. He finds his place in guiding others to and through retirement and strives to be a trusted advisor to clients and their families for generations to come.

Derek has lived in Georgia since 1979. A lifelong traveler, he is on a never-ending quest to learn about other civilizations and cultures. He is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys fishing, hiking and sightseeing.
