The $73 million Bridgeway Federal Credit Union in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., has named Michelle McCourt as its new president and CEO.
McCourt was elected by the 9,000-member credit union’s board of directors to succeed P.J. Walker, who retired in March.
McCourt has more than 20 years of credit union and other financial services experience and joined Bridgeway FCU in 2008 as executive vice president and chief financial officer.
She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration and accounting from Mount St. Mary College, her MBA from Marist College and expects to receive her Certified Credit Union Executive designation this July, Bridgeway said.
Bridgeway FCU was founded in 1935, has four branches and is the oldest continuously operating credit union in the Hudson Valley.
