Lower East Side People’s Federal Credit Union

New York, NY


Position Description

Are We the Place For You?
Lower East Side People’s Federal Credit Union ($60M; New York, NY) is driven by a vision of thriving, sustainable, and diverse communities where all people live with dignity and contribute fully to their communities and society. Organized in 1986 to promote economic justice and opportunity in NYC neighborhoods, we are a financial cooperative dedicated to providing high-quality financial services and community development investments in low income, immigrant and other underserved communities.

We are currently seeking our next President/CEO: Someone guided equally by the heart and the mind, who will carry our organization forward with passion, compassion, financial acumen, and thoughtful leadership.

Is This the Career For You?
If you measure success by the difference you make and believe that affordable financial products and services—delivered with dignity—can change lives, you might be the leader we are seeking. You will thrive in an environment where you lead, educate, and motivate others to join you in your commitment. You will bring people-leader skills, financial savvy, and innovative approaches to serving. You will be a community-builder with great communication skills, ready to bring together members, staff, the Board of Directors, regulators, and other community partners who share our commitment to economic justice.

Deeply understanding the membership and neighborhoods we serve, as well as management of key financial ratios and compliance requirements, will position you to build products, services, and delivery channels that lead to financial viability for the credit union. Your appreciation of the value of diversity and your commitment to inclusion for all—likely honed working with multicultural populations and across various income levels-- means you can connect key stakeholders in a way that will improve our community and meet members’ financial needs.

Let’s Get To Know Each Other.
We look forward to learning about you and invite you to submit a cover letter that tells us why you’re the right choice to lead us forward. It should demonstrate:

1. Your passion for community and economic justice;
2. Experience working with diverse communities (bilingual English/Spanish candidates preferred);
3. Your business and financial acumen; and
4. the leadership savvy you have gained through supervising a team, interacting with a Board of Directors, and serving as an organizational leader.

Please include a link to your LinkedIn profile or a copy of your resume showing at least 5 years of senior management experience (preferably at a credit union or community development organization) and information about leadership roles where you have been called to serve the community (Boards, committees, coalitions).
