Position Description

Are We the Place For You?
First Alliance Credit Union ($277M, Stewartville, MN) is seeking our next President/Chief Executive Officer. Since our founding in 1932, we have grown to serve more than 20,000 members across five counties in southeast Minnesota (Olmsted, Dodge, Goodhue, Wabasha, and Winona). This means we have even more opportunities to empower members to find financial well-being, living our values of trust, compassion, inclusion, diversity, innovation, empowerment, stewardship, and flexibility.

First Alliance Credit Union is headquartered in Stewartville, Minnesota (just outside of Rochester, Minnesota’s third-largest city). With a growing and increasingly diverse population, people are attracted to the area by employers like the Mayo Clinic and IBM. Residents are drawn to our robust park system and thriving local arts scene. Rochester offers a high quality of life, with a charming downtown, a low crime rate, and excellent educational and medical facilities.

At First Alliance, our mission is simple: we place our members’ needs first! Our tagline, “all for one,” reflects our commitment that all that we do is for every one of our members.

Is This the Career For You?
Our next President/CEO should be a strategic and forward-thinking leader who will continue to guide the credit union with a keen eye toward understanding our communities’ changing needs and meeting those needs with business acumen and compassion. Approachable and open, the President/CEO will need to effectively establish rapport with employees, members, community leaders, other credit union industry executives, and the Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors is comprised of a diverse group of key stakeholders who bring age, gender, racial, ethnic, experiential, and occupational diversity. Most of all, this Board brings a commitment to serving the members of the credit union and the broader community in partnership with a President/CEO who is committed to the community and inspired to connect meaningfully with those stakeholders. The Board is seeking someone who will build an organization where people can grow their careers and thrive, aligned with a unified vision of strengthening the community by anticipating and meeting their financial needs.

The President/CEO will drive the culture of First Alliance, setting the credit union on a trajectory for continued growth and impact throughout southeast Minnesota.
