Jim Doig, the longtime president/CEO of Sidney FCU, will retire at year-end, the credit union announced today. James Reynolds has been selected to serve as president/CEO of the company upon Doig’s retirement.
Doig was appointed president/CEO of the Sidney, New York-based credit union in January 1997 after already accumulating 20 years of experience in the financial services field, including in the areas of lending, member services, security, compliance, and branch operations.
“Jim has achieved a tremendous amount during the 22 years he has dedicated to sfcu,” said Scott McLean, the credit union’s board chairman. “Since he started as our President/CEO in 1997, Jim has overseen a fourfold increase in our assets… I want to thank Jim for all he has done for the development and progress of Sidney Federal Credit Union and the communities we serve and wish him the very best in his retirement. Our Board of Directors looks forward to working closely with Jim Reynolds to continue to build our organization, which serves 48,000 members in our current field of membership.”
Throughout his career, Doig has been highly engaged with the credit union movement. Notably, Doig served on the UsNet board of directors for more than 20 years and was chairman for three terms. He has also served on the New York Credit Union Association’s Governmental Affairs Committee and the CULAC/CUPAC board of trustees, and he’s been an active attendee at events hosted by the Association and CUNA.
Additionally, Doig has long volunteered his time at numerous civic and charitable organizations.
“Jim is an exceptional credit union leader whose shoes will not be easily filled,” said Association President/CEO William J. Mellin. “Anyone who has spent any amount of time in the New York credit union movement has undoubtedly seen Jim at credit union events – always active, attentive and seeking new ways to move his credit union forward. I wish Jim all the best on his well-deserved retirement, though the New York credit union community will certainly miss his leadership.”
