The $1 billion Sharonview Federal Credit Union in Fort Mill, S.C., has named William W. Partin Jr. as the 65,500-member credit union’s new president/CEO effective Oct. 21.
Partin has been senior vice president at the $1.2 billion Partners FCU in Burbank, Calif., where he has been for the past eight years. During that time the credit union doubled in asset size and earned the Raddon Crystal Performance Award in 2012, his new employer said.
“Bill comes to Sharonview with a great deal of experience in a leadership capacity and has a passion for creating a positive energy within the organization and the credit union movement alike,” said Board Chairman Kenneth Dawson.
He succeeds retiring President/CEO John Carlson. Sharonview was created with $11,000 in assets after 20 factory workers met with a representative from the North Carolina Credit Union League. It now has 18 branches in North Carolina, South Carolina and New Jersey.
