After 26 years at Digital Federal Credit Union, Thomas Ryan heads to Virginia, where he will succeed Jean Yokum, who has spent more than 55 years at the $1.7 billion, 165,500-member Langley Federal Credit Union.
Ryan takes over as president/CEO of the Newport News credit union on July 18. He had been executive vice president/chief operating officer at the 357,000-member DCU in Marlborough, Mass.
Ryan has been in executive positions at DCU for the past 17 years, during which time the credit union grew from $330 million to $4.4 billion.
“Tom’s dedication to the industry and his proven track record of growth and member service will make him a strong leader for our credit union. We have the utmost confidence that under Tom’s leadership Langley Federal Credit Union will continue to grow and exceed the needs of our membership,” said William Griffith Jr., Langley FCU’s board chairman.
Ryan said, “It is an honor to accept the role of president/CEO for LFCU. The organization has such an amazing history and a great reputation for member service. I am eager to begin my service to the credit union. Also, I am extremely grateful for the opportunities I have had at Digital FCU and the experience I have gained from my time there, without which, I would not be where I am today.”
