President/Chief Executive Officer

Community Financial Credit Union

Plymouth, MI


Position Description

Are We the Place For You?
Community Financial Credit Union ($1.2B; Greater Detroit, MI) is seeking our next President/Chief Executive Officer, as our current executive moves into retirement after over 30 years of dedicated service to the credit union, the community, and the over 76,000 members we serve.

Community Financial has proudly served its members and its community for 70 years. Headquartered in Plymouth, MI, with 13 branches in southeast and northern Michigan, we are proud of our strong local ties and local emphasis embodied by our signature tagline, “Right here, right for you.” We have embraced our connection to community as much more than just a name, totally dedicated to the financial soundness of those we serve. We have grown our membership by always keeping their best interests top-of-mind and our commitment to providing exceptional service and giving back has driven our success.

Guided by a Policy Governance Model, the Board of Directors and President/CEO work closely together to conduct business in a way that keeps the credit union financially sound and members extremely satisfied.

Is This the Career For You?
Community Financial Credit Union’s President/CEO will make culture a priority, continuing to build up a workplace that has been voted one of the “101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in Metro Detroit.” As the President/CEO, your most important responsibility will be building a great team environment with your executives, your Board of Directors, and all the team members who make Community Financial special.

You will thrive here if you passionately believe that the members are the most important stakeholder of the credit union and can continue a culture where every team member believes they have a responsibility to deliver on the credit union’s mission. A great listener, you will build understanding of why the credit union has been so successful, then work alongside your team to continue improving upon its member and team member satisfaction and financial well-being through a spirit of continuous learning and accountability. Your communication style has created a reputation that you are trustworthy, collaborative, and always about the team. Your track record has demonstrated that this collaborative and visionary style gets results, demonstrated in both the success of financial institutions and programs you have led, as well as in the growth of the people you have recruited, developed, and retained on your teams. Relationships have likely been key to your success, with your involvement in engaging in advocacy efforts for the system and partnering with mission-driven community organizations resulting in new business growth and opportunities to be on the leading edge of adopting new solutions for members.

Understanding that numbers are not the main goal but are important indicators of success, you will set, monitor, and take action to meet organizational goals related to financial stability, loan growth, and member satisfaction, always holding yourself and your team accountable to delivering at the highest level. Experience focusing on mission while maintaining good financial performance will demonstrate your qualifications for this role.

Help Us Get to Know You

You should understand how each department of a credit union contributes to overall success, how to work effectively with a Board of Directors and key functional leaders, and how to lead an organization through all areas of business planning.

These skills were most likely acquired through a combination of executive leadership and education. Today, you likely hold a formal degree and a top leadership position at a credit union (5 years executive leadership experience), and you know what it takes to grow to and lead a $1 Billion financial institution.
