The $55 million, 7,000-member Hershey Federal Credit Union in Hummelstown, Pa., has named Paul Wagner as its new president/CEO.
Wagner, currently vice president of operations and lending, succeeds Diana Roberts, who plans to retire in July after more than 31 years at the Pennsylvania credit union.
HFCU had $2.2 million in assets and 1,675 members when Roberts was hired by the single-sponsor credit union in 1982. She now heads a community credit union that services two counties with three branches in Hershey, Annville and Hummelstown.
Roberts has been active in the industry, serving on the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association board since 1982, including as chair from 2007 to 2009, HFCU said, and as a CUNA director from 1997-2008. She was inducted into the Credit Union House Hall of Leaders in 2010.
“I have met many wonderful people and have seen first-hand how credit unions can improve the lives of their members,” said Roberts, who was CEO at the former Millersville University FCU before joining HFCU. “My work has been a joy and I enter into retirement knowing that I have worked hard for the benefit of others.”
Wagner has more than 35 years of experience at credit unions and banks and is the president of the Harrisburg Chapter of Credit Unions as well as a CUNA Management School graduate and Certified Credit Union Executive.
“HFCU is great credit union and I’m proud to be following Diana as CEO,” Wagner said in the credit union’s announcement. “The credit union is well prepared for the future and I look forward to working with the board and employees of Hershey Federal Credit Union as we continue to do all we can to meet our members’ financial needs.”
