Rick Parker to Retire As President and CEO
After 25 years of distinguished service, Rick Parker has announced his plan to retire at the end of June 2021 as President and CEO of the Credit Union. He has helped the Credit Union grow from a small operation in Gaskill Hall on the Miami Campus to a thriving organization with over 6,000 members. Under Rick’s leadership, our Credit Union has seen large growth in assets and products, including a wide array of online features. Rick has overseen the construction of new offices on Lynn Avenue and College Corner Pike, and helped our Credit Union to be recognized as a model for the industry. The Board thanks Rick for his outstanding leadership of the Credit Union and wishes him well for his retirement.
James Schultheiss Identified As the Next President and CEO
We are pleased that James (Jim) Schultheiss has accepted the position as President and CEO effective July 1, 2021. Mr. Schultheiss has a wealth of experience in the Credit Union industry that includes serving as President and CEO of Chaco Credit Union for 15 years. He recently has been the Chief Operating Officer at TruPartner Credit Union in Cincinnati. Jim is familiar with our Credit Union as he worked here for a brief time in the 1990s and is a graduate of Miami University. He will begin serving in a transitional role at the Credit Union in May, and we are convinced that Jim will be an effective leader for our Credit Union.
We hope that members will thank Rick Parker for his 25 years of leadership, and will welcome Jim Schultheiss as our future President and CEO.
