American First Credit Union President/CEO Bob Street has retired after 20 years of service.
"I've had the honor and privilege of serving American First members for two decades," said Street. "I'm extremely proud of the great strides we've made to increase our members' assets and continue our pursuit to provide convenient and technologically advanced financial products and services for our increased membership base. As I now begin a new journey, I am confident the credit union will continue to grow and prosper under the direction of the highly-skilled staff and loyal members I leave behind."
Street joined the credit union in June 1990 and is credited with helping La Habra, a Calif.-based credit union grow from a small credit union providing only limited financial services to supermarket employees to one of Orange County's largest full-service community credit unions serving 60,000 members. Under his leadership, the credit union's assets grew from $200 million to $570 million.
Chief Lending Officer Pam Easley has been tapped to serve as interim president/CEO until a replacement is named by the American First CU board.
