SAFE CU Promotes Dave Roughton to President/COO
SAFE Credit Union Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer Dave Roughton has been promoted to president/chief operating officer.
In his new role, Roughton will assume more of the day-to-day responsibilities for the Sacramento, Calif.-based credit union, with direct charge over the retail services, accounting/finance, and information technology divisions.
Remaining in the top management spot as SAFE’s CEO, Henry Wirz will continue to focus on the $1.9 billion credit union’s development strategies, long-term business plan and working more closely with the board of directors.
Roughton has more than 19 years of experience with SAFE in addition to seven as SAFE’s external CPA.
““These changes will continue to support the high level of member service and close team work between the front line retail teams and our back office support teams,” Wirz said. “SAFE’s asset size and increased complexity requires additional leadership and changes to our internal structure to meet the needs of our growing organization,” he said.
