Longtime corporate credit union executive Brad Miller has been named the new president/CEO of Palmetto Cooperative Services LLC, a provider of payment processing, statement and electronic services.
Miller, most recently CEO of the now-merged Southeast Corporate FCU in Tallahassee, Fla., will succeed Ed Culpepper, who retired late last year from PCS, which is based in the Columbia, S.C., suburb of Irmo.
“After extensive interviewing, the PCS board of directors unanimously agreed to offer the position to Brad,” said Jerry Miller, PCS Board chairman and president/CEO of the $173 million Carolina Trust FCU in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
“His background as president and CEO for two different corporate credit unions and leadership experience with both non-profit and for profit financial service providers will be a great asset to us,” Jerry Miller said.
Brad Miller had the top job at Southeast from 2010 to 2012, when it was merged into Corporate One in Columbus, Ohio. He also has served as president/CEO of Treasure State Corporate and as executive director of the Association of Corporate Credit Unions.
His 25-year career also has included management roles at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and a consulting company, his new employer said and he also has served as board chairman for three CUSOs: Member Business Solutions, Accolade Investment Advisory and Corporate Synergies.
“PCS is a recognized industry leader with a 40-plus year history of supporting credit unions and a great reputation for service,” Miller said. “I’m looking forward to sharing my experience and helping build on that success. “
A married father of two teenage children, Miller has a bachelor’s degree in business technology from Montana State University and an MBA from the University of Montana. His new job at PCS begins on April 8, the CUSO said.
PCS said it now serves 450 credit unions in 23 states and is owned by 24 credit unions and three leagues.
