Longtime credit union leader retires, new Money FCU president/CEO named

After a nearly three-decade career at Money FCU in Syracuse, Bruce LaGrow, president/CEO, retired on Sept. 30.

“As I wind down my last few days as president and CEO of Money FCU, I want to pass along my thanks and appreciation for the friends and business partners who have supported us over my 27-plus wonderful years. It’s time to move on to other things and let some younger minds take the reins and keep this organization running strong,” LaGrow said last week.

“I am pleased to announce that Linda Fitzgibbons will be taking over for me in the capacity of president and CEO. I have had the pleasure of working with her for my entire career here, and I feel very confident leaving this credit union in her extremely capable hands. My wish is that Money FCU will continue to serve its members for years to come,” LaGrow added.

William J. Mellin, New York Credit Union Association president/CEO, congratulated both LaGrow and Fitzgibbons on their commitment and dedication to the credit union movement.

“The New York credit union community will miss Bruce LaGrow’s leadership and commitment, but his retirement is well-deserved and well-earned, and I wish him all the best in this next chapter of his life,” he said. “And on behalf of the Association, I’d like to congratulate Linda Fitzgibbons on her appointment as president/CEO at Money FCU. I look forward to continuing to work with Money FCU with Linda at its helm as we continue our efforts to further the mission of credit unions.”

Money FCU also announced the appointment of Melissa Collins its COO.
