Advance Financial CU CEO Retires
After serving 14 years as president/CEO of the $154 million Advance Financial Credit Union, John Wohadlo retired Dec. 31, according to a prepared statement.
He was succeeded by Jerry Gomez who was appointed president/CEO of the Schererville, Ind.-based credit union effective Jan. 1. He joined Advance Financial CU 11 years ago and recently worked as its EVP.
During Wohadlo’s tenure, he led the cooperative’s rebranding initiative from the Inland Employees Federal Credit Union to Advance Financial Federal Credit Union.
Though he facilitated the cooperative’s growth in loans and checking account products, Wohadlo said he attributed the credit union’s success to its dedicated employees and a strong base of loyal members.
Advance Financial serves nearly 18,000 members and operates three branches.
“Under Jerry’s capable leadership, we can all continue to anticipate a strong and stable future for our members,” Wohadlo said in a prepared statement.
