Heritage Community Taps Turk for CEO
The $198 million Heritage Community Credit Union announced Wednesday it selected Ed Turk as its new CEO. He will replace Celeste Martinez, who will retire next month from the Sacramento, Calif.-based credit union after 40 years in the credit union industry.
Turk brings more than 20 years of experience in the financial and credit union industry to the job, with a background in finance, lending, strategic planning, management and operations, the credit union said in a release. Most recently, he was EVP/chief operating officer for iQ Credit Union in Vancouver, Wash.
HCCU Chairman Dan Freeman stated: “We were very impressed with Ed’s experience, energy and abilities, and feel he is an excellent fit for our credit union and culture. We are confident that under his leadership, Heritage Community Credit Union will continue to grow and thrive, and we look forward to a bright future with him at the helm.”
