C. Skip Wilson has been selected the new regional president for HeritageWest Credit Union and SouthWest Community Credit Union, divisions of the $1.9 billion Chartway Federal Credit Union in Virginia Beach, Va.
“Having spent a great deal of time speaking with Skip and learning about his drive, his energy, and his passion for making the credit union difference, I am confident that he will be an outstanding addition to our organization,” Ron Burniske, president/CEO of Chartway FCU said in a prepared statement. “We know Skip will contribute significantly – professionally and culturally – to the ongoing success of our organization.”
Chartway consolidated two previously merged Utah-based credit unions effective Oct. 1. The two credit unions – HeritageWest and Utah Central – are both located in the greater Salt Lake City area and were merged into Chartway in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
Wilson is an alumnus of Utah State University and the CBA/BAI Graduate School of Retail Bank Management and has spent the past 13 years in the financial industry as a senior level professional, Chartway said.
Most recently he served as the first vice president for a leading financial firm where he helped lead an acquisition of two large financial institutions and spearheaded activities related to growth, profit, expense control, branch integration, sales, and production.
Wilson also has extensive experience in revenue growth, new market entry, product development, lending, production, compliance, employee and business development, customer care, human resources, organic/inorganic growth, and culture integration, his new employer said.
Chartway, HeritageWest and SouthWest credit unions serve more than 186,000 members and operate 59 branches in Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah and Virginia.
