Ron Collier, CEO of the $1.3 billion Indiana Members Credit Union, has been inducted into the Indiana Credit Union Hall of Fame.
Collier, who joined IMCU in 1985 as training director and has been CEO since 2003, was inducted during the Chairman’s Awards Banquet on Oct. 7 at the Indiana Credit Union League Convention in Indianapolis.
Collier was cited for his giving “exceptional time, effort and talent to the credit union movement,” as well as leadership, high standards, volunteerism and technical innovations in credit union service.
“Being a part of the credit union movement is something I am passionate about. ‘People Helping People’ is a philosophy that I feel is a natural fit with credit unions as a whole due to the true nature of our business,” Collier said.
He currently serves on the boards for BackPack Attack, Teachers Treasures and the Ruth Lilly Health Education Foundation, and also has been a board member of CUES, the CUNA National Youth Involvement Board and other civic and industry organizations.
A Ball State University graduate, Collier taught and coached at Noblesville High School for three years before joining the credit union movement. He has been a high school football referee for more than 25 years, and is the married father of three adult children and two grandchildren.
IMCU was founded in 1956 as the Indiana University Medical Center FCU and now has about 108,000 members and 23 branches in central Indiana.
