Is This the Role For You?
Being the Chief Financial Officer at Peninsula Credit Union is the ideal role for a strategic financial leader who understands how to collaborate with others to develop and execute effective strategies, actions, programs and process that will help PCU achieve all its business objectives.
Overseeing all elements of finance, facilities, and purchasing, you will help the credit union reach its growth, profitability, and financial performance objectives. A solutions-based, inclusive leader, you will use your role to research, evaluate, recommend and implement financial/accounting solutions, vendor relationships, and opportunities for growth to the PCU Leadership Team and the Board of Directors.
Guided by the strategic plan and regulatory requirements, and in partnership with the executive team and direct reports, this key leader will administer the credit union investment portfolio, asset/liability management system, and accounting information system, as well as managing PCU’s facility maintenance and supply administration.
Thorough knowledge of effective accounting principles (GAAP), financial accounting standards, state and federal regulations, and advanced math skills (including investment yield and performance, investment strategy, and interest rate forecasting) will be key to doing the job well. Strong ability to analyze and communicate complex thoughts in a straightforward way will help others love having you in the role.
