Climaxing a 27-year stretch of service, Robert E. Harvey Jr., the president/CEO of the $544 million Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union and the former chairman of WesCorp, is retiring next April.
Harvey, a past chair of the Washington Credit Union League and the African-American Credit Union Coalition, joined the Seattle CU in 1992 after previously serving as both vice president of loans and operations at Lockheed FCU in Burbank, Calif., where he began his CU career in 1983. A successor at Seattle Metro has not been named, said the CU.
Earlier in his career, Harvey held managerial jobs at Wells Fargo and Bank of America in Los Angeles.
Harvey had been the WesCorp chairman during the NCUA's March 2009 conservatorship of the California-based corporate. He had been elected to the WesCorp board in 2001.
