Greylock Federal Credit Union
Are we the place for you?
At Greylock Federal Credit Union ($1.4B, Pittsfield, MA) we are guided by our IDEA principles – Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility – to support a workforce that reflects our community in western Massachusetts, Columbia County, New York, and Bennington, Vermont. We have a mission and goal of building a diverse workforce - reflecting multiple identities - and supporting the diverse communities where we are based.
Our team is deeply committed to three key components: High quality financial services for all; placing the member first; and meeting people where they are. Each of our employees holds these principles at the heart of how they serve. Our VP-Controller has the opportunity to live these daily in leadership to his/her/their team and in how you support the financial well-being of the credit union and how we meet members’ needs. Aligning with these principles and our core values of passion, compassion, integrity, creativity, stewardship, and fiscal responsibility will make Greylock and you a right fit.
Is this the role for you?
Reporting to the SVP-Finance, the VP-Controller plays a critical leadership role on our finance team, partnering to create an environment that helps all areas of the credit union meet our members’ needs.
Well-grounded in accounting and clear on balance sheet strategies, our VP-Controller will also live and lead with heart. If you have earned a CPA, we will know how serious you are about accounting. If you can tell us how you have helped build up another leader, we will know you might be right for our team.
Cross-functional, organizational understanding and collaboration will help you succeed at Greylock. This will contribute to your success in working with other team members and in engaging with auditors and examiners to demonstrate regulatory compliance and clear understanding of audit practices.
The VP-Controller is responsible for preparing financial statements in accordance with GAAP, conducting month-end, quarter-end, and year-end book closings, and preparing and filing assigned regulatory reports. Familiarity with NCUA Call Reports is helpful. Some understanding of Asset Liability Management will help you contribute in ALCO meetings.
Done well, this role offers a clear career path to the SVP-Finance or CFO role for a high-performing team member. Top candidates will demonstrate a passion for personal growth, competency in the technical needs of the position, and enthusiasm for developing others on the team to build a strong department.
