Frank Wilber has been named the new president/CEO of the $156 million Liberty First Credit Union in Lincoln, Neb.
Wilber currently is executive vice president at the $340 million ELGA Credit Union in Burton, Mich., where he has been the past seven years, his new employer said.
“Frank has many great ideas for continuing Liberty First’s history of growth and exceptional member service. His unique vision and drive will ensure continued success for the credit union,” Tom Bolton, Liberty First chairman said in the announcement Wednesday.
Wilber’s new position becomes effective on Nov. 25 as he succeeds Ken Bradshaw, who is retiring at the end of the year, the 18,800-member First Liberty said.
Liberty First was originally chartered as the Burlington Employees Cooperative Credit Association in 1935 and served the employees of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad. Its field of membership now includes Lancaster and Seward counties.
The organization has such a rich history and a great reputation for member services. I am eager to begin my service to the credit union and its community,” Wilber said in the announcement.
