“As a lender, I love helping people get into the house of their dreams, whether it is their first one, their forever one, or a place to get away,” said Hotchkin. “Maine State Credit Union has been very welcoming, and I am excited to help the organization continue to grow.”

Before joining Maine State Credit Union, Hotchkin was a vice president and senior retail loan officer for Camden National Bank at its Belfast branch. She will remain in the midcoast region, joining the credit union's Rockland team at 168 Camden St.

Prior to joining Camden National, she was a mortgage specialist at Machias Savings Bank. 

“We are happy to have someone with Nicole's experience and knowledge of the Maine housing market join our organization,” said Brie-Anne Mellor, senior vice president and chief lending officer. “She will help us to develop and build our mortgage product portfolio, create efficiencies, and improve our online systems.”

Hotchkin received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. She lives with her family on the midcoast and is an active volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of Waldo County. She supports local youth hockey, lacrosse and baseball teams.

Maine State Credit Union has more than $600 million in assets and 120 employees. Founded in 1935 inside the Maine State House in Augusta as a savings institution for state employees, the institution has grown to more than 33,000 members.  

It ranks No. 3 among the largest Maine-based credit unions, according to the 2023 Mainebiz Book of Lists. The ranking is based on the credit union's assets of $585 million as of Sept. 30, 2022.
