The board of directors at Teachers FCU, has named Brad Calhoun as the Hauppauge-based credit union’s new president/CEO. Calhoun most recently served as chief retail and marketing officer for First Tech FCU, headquartered in Hillsboro, Oregon.
“On behalf of the board and staff of TFCU, we welcome Mr. Calhoun to the credit union,” said Timothy M. Southerton, TFCU board chairman. “He is a respected credit union and banking sector leader who has a clear vision for fiscal growth, innovation and adapting to ever-changing markets.”
Calhoun has over 24 years of leadership experience in banking and credit unions, including holding several roles at Bank of America. At First Tech FCU, he led the strategic direction of the organization and was responsible for nearly half of the more than 1,400 employees who work out of 42 branches across eight states. In addition, Calhoun directed a number of major marketing initiatives and spearheaded the redesign and strategy for all branches.
“I welcome the opportunity to work with TFCU’s board, staff and members as we enter this new chapter in the credit union’s history,” Calhoun said. “TFCU is a respected credit union that has seen rapid growth over the past several years. I am committed to a smooth transition of leadership and I am eager to get to know and work with the board, executive team and staff members.”
As previously reported, Bob Allen, the longtime former president/CEO of TFCU, retired at the end of May after 31 years with the credit union.
