Patricia Zyma, who joined the credit union in 1997, succeeds Glen Yeager, who has retired.
Utilities Employees Credit Union said its long-time president/CEO, Glen Yeager, will retire on Oct. 1.
Glen Yeager grew his Pennsylvania credit union from $80M to $1.1B, pioneering a low-cost, virtual business model.
A member loyalty bonus program helped UECU, a virtual cooperative with no branches, return $12 million to its 44,000 members in 2012.
Its 45,000 members include employees of 600 companies and members of an association for individuals currently employed or pursuing employment in the energy industry.
