Award spotlight: Outstanding Professional

The 2022 Recognition Awards will be presented to New York credit unions during the New York Credit Union Association’s Annual Meeting & Convention at the Sagamore Resort on Lake George June 16–19. The awards will be presented during the general session on Friday, June 17.

Today’s featured award is the Outstanding Professional Award, which honors professionals who have a true passion for credit unions and who inspire others with their hard work, dedication and success.

The Association is proud to recognize Ed Butler, executive vice president/COO of Visions FCU. Butler has been employed with Visions FCU since college and has worked as everything from a teller to the executive vice president during his 42-year employment. He has been predominantly focused on lending and serves to be a wealth of knowledge in that space.

As executive vice president, Butler has provided oversight to the following departments: human resources, information technology, business performance, internal operations, governmental affairs and everything member-facing.

He also has been instrumental in annual strategic planning exercises for the organization and has been attending the CUNA GAC for over 10 years.

“As he looks toward retirement in 2022, his focus has shifted to helping provide the outline and strategy for the growth of Visions Federal Credit Union to $10 billion and beyond,” his nomination states. “An assignment that is well suited for Ed and the breadth of credit union knowledge that he has!”
