CUES’ President/CEO John Pembroke to be Inducted into AACUC Hall of Fame

MADISON, Wis.—CUES is proud to announce that President/CEO John Pembroke is being recognized for his contributions to the credit union industry as an inductee into the 2021 African American Credit Union Coalition’s (AACUC) Hall of Fame. He and four other industry leaders will be recognized in a ceremony happening online on March 1

Pembroke joined CUES in 2013 as SVP/Chief Operating Officer, and was named President/CEO in 2015. He has been instrumental in developing and launching a new direction in CUES’ strategy, branding, membership, and culture. 

Pembroke received his first exposure to the industry during a high school internship at the credit union at his church. He has been an avid supporter of the AACUC and their mission since his tenure as Chief Marketing Officer at PSCU. This support continues with CUES, which provides complimentary memberships to participants in the AACUC’s mentorship program, offering them access to top professional development tools. 

“The AACUC has done great things for credit unions, and as a product of the industry myself, I’m beyond honored to be recognized in this way,” said Pembroke. “Congratulations go out my fellow 2021 inductees, as well.”
