After some 25 years, 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union's CEO, Adrian “Casey” Duplantier, will retire from the Yorktown, Va., credit union at the end of the year.
Under Duplantier’s leadership, 1st Advantage has grown to $550 million in assets; merged several small credit unions; changed its membership base to a community charter; and increased branches from four to 11.
In addition, the 56,000-member credit union reported that it wrapped up 2010 with a record net income.
“I have been in the credit union world for over 30 years, 10 years as a CEO in New Orleans and just under 25 years with 1A,” Duplantier said. “My wife and I like to travel and we have a bucket list which we plan to accomplish while we are young and healthy.”
The search is under way to have a successor in place by the fourth quarter of 2011.
