The $3.6 billion Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union in Washington, D.C., said Tuesday it has named Eli Vazquez as its next CEO and managing director.
Vazquez has spent the past 16 years at the $5.6 billion American Airlines FCU in Texas, where he currently is chief financial officer and senior vice president of mortgage and business lending, his new employer said.
He will take the helm of Bank-Fund Staff FCU in December, succeeding interim CEO George West, the credit union said in its announcement.
The 81,000-member Bank-Fund Staff FCU is the credit union for employees and family members of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
Prior to joining AACU, Vazquez worked at American Airlines in corporate finance and planning roles. “As an expatriate in Mexico, he led operations, sales and government relations for American Airlines, giving him insight into and appreciation for the financial services required by Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union members,” Bank-Fund Staff said.
"Eli is a perfect fit for our members and employees. He will provide the leadership needed to deliver world class products and services,” Board Chairman Kenneth Miranda said in the announcement.
