A Letter from the President/CEO
I am honored and excited to have recently been appointed Chief Executive Officer by the U1 Board of Directors on October 19, 2021. I have served in a variety of leadership roles throughout the years at Universal 1 Credit Union, most recently as Senior Vice President Finance, prior to my appointment as U1 President in April 2021. I am involved in both National- and Ohio-focused credit union organizations which provides an excellent opportunity for me to help advocate for the important roles credit unions play in our community. I also enjoy sharing the Universal 1 Credit Union story, which will include 85 years of history in 2022. We look forward to celebrating this important milestone with you, our loyal members, in the coming year.
The last few years have been unprecedented in many ways for our members, our communities, and our credit union family. I am extremely grateful for the perseverance of our staff and board as we pivoted often and quickly to provide services to our members during this difficult time. I want to assure you that Universal 1 Credit Union is strong and financially secure and remains so even with all the challenges that 2020 & 2021 have brought us!
2022 looks bright for Universal 1 Credit Union as we continue to look for more ways to optimize how we can deliver Beyond What You Expected service to our members and our community. I, along with the Staff and Board, am very optimistic and excited about the future and will continue striving to improve the financial well-being of our members and being your financial solutions partner.
