Message from the President

Dear Fellow UECU Member,
 
After more than 30 years working within the credit union industry, including the past 20 years with Utilities Employees Credit Union, I am announcing my decision to retire as President and CEO effective December 31, 2017. It has been an honor to lead this incredible organization, with such dedicated professionals and loyal members.
  
Like many things in life, hard work and a bit of good luck brought me to UECU in 1997. Over the years I had the privilege of working beside some exceptional mentors which helped in preparing me for key leadership roles during my career at UECU. Being entrusted as CEO for an organization that I love was the pinnacle of my professional career.
 
I am proud of what our team has accomplished over my years at UECU, as the organization has evolved and grown from a $300 million credit union in 1997, to a $1.2 billion full service credit union serving hundreds of companies and over 45,000 members nationwide with a broad range of products and services.  Particularly rewarding is being part of an industry where our focus lies squarely on the membership, and knowing that our work truly makes a positive difference in the financial lives of those we serve.
   
You can rest assured the UECU Board of Directors employed an extensive and thorough search process in finding UECU’s next President and CEO, which included engaging a financial services executive search firm, as they considered both internal and external candidates. I am pleased to share that Bret Krevolin, UECU’s Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, has been selected by the Board to assume the role of President and CEO on January 1st.  Bret joined UECU in 2014, bringing over 25 years of financial and executive leadership to the position.
 
As we look ahead for the Credit Union, I am confident its future is in good hands. Under Bret’s leadership and with UECU’s skilled management team and dedicated staff and volunteers, your Credit Union will continue to reach new heights.    
 
The future for me is full of anticipation and excitement about spending more time with family and exploring other interests. As I phase into this next chapter I will always cherish the relationships and friendships I gained at UECU. It’s been an honor to serve you over these many years.
 
Best wishes,
 
Pat Zyma
CEO and UECU Member
