Ready For What’s Ahead

Dear Members:

I want to take this time to introduce myself: I am Ryan Ross, the new President/CEO of AFFCU. I’ve been in this role a little over 40 days and so far have really been inspired by what I’ve seen. Now, I know a change in leadership makes us all a bit nervous about the uncertainties that could be on the horizon. As AFFCU’s President and CEO, I want to assure you that nothing is more important than our members and the AFFCU team.

The Credit Union’s history and commitment to Integrity, Service, and Excellence are among the many reasons why I wanted to step into this role. I have a heart for the credit union movement, which drives my passion to improve the products and services we offer you. I come from a credit union family. My mom has worked for a credit union for over forty years. I’ve seen firsthand how a great experience with a credit union representative can positively impact your day.

I’m excited about this incredible journey to strengthen and improve our processes to make every part of your membership seamless. My days have been filled with meetings: meetings with employees, members, community partners, and learning the ins and outs of AFFCU. These meetings provide me the opportunity to gain a better understanding of what AFFCU needs to do to become the best financial institution for both its members and staff.

I look forward to building on the Credit Union’s 68-year legacy as we continue to improve our products and services to best assist you and your family’s financial needs. Thank you for joining us on this journey.

Sincerely,

 

 

 

 

 

Ryan Ross

President/CEO
