Print Preview: Carla Altepeter Ready to Take Up Baton at Numerica
Replacing a 40-year veteran who, after all, just had the headquarters building named after him, could seem daunting, but Carla Altepeter knows something about staying power.
The lifelong credit union veteran takes over as president/CEO of the $1.1 billion Numerica Credit Union in Spokane, Valley, Wash., on Sept. 1, succeeding Dennis Cutter.
The new Numerica CEO said she also plans to continue her active involvement in the industry at regional and state levels, including continuing to serve on the national CUES board through the completion of her final term in 2012. (She was active in foundation work in Wisconsin and is a CUES Hall of Fame member.)
“It’s also been my experience that involvement in various industry roles–locally, regionally and nationally–has helped keep CitizensFirst’s leadership team at the forefront of industry trends,” Altepeter said. “This has allowed the credit union to be more aware of emerging risks and challenges the industry faces.”
