The African-American Credit Union Coalition has named Ty Muse, president/CEO of Visions FCU, the winner of its Pete Crear Lifetime Achievement Award.
The award is presented annually recognizing a credit union professional or volunteer whose career best embodies the AACUC’s mission to increase the strength of the global credit union community, and sustained excellence is a hallmark of the recipients, according to the AACUC. Further, the winner will have “constructively impacted the infrastructure, growth, legislative, regulatory, image and/or service delivery capacity of the credit union community.”
Muse has worked in financial services for more than 30 years, approaching 10 years in his current role as Visions president/CEO, where he oversees over 800 employees and 56 branches across New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. During his time at Visions FCU, the organization’s assets have grown from $3.2 billion to $5.6 billion, according to the credit union.
Muse was also recently recognized as Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 Civic Leader of the Year and as a 2021 inductee to the Credit Union Executives Society (CUES) Hall of Fame. The award will be presented to Muse during the 24th annual AACUC Conference in St. Petersburg, Fla., Aug. 23–27.
