ST. PAUL, Minn. – Hiway FCU President/CEO James Seifert will retire at the end of this year after 30 years with the CU. The $500 million CU primarily serves the greater St. Paul region. Hiway FCU experienced tremendous growth under Seifert, but Seifert may be best known around the CU for his volunteer work that has permeated the CU’s staff. Seifert and many of the CU’s employees are regular volunteers for various charities. This year alone Hiway FCU employees raised $20,000 for Gillette Children’s Hospital in St. Paul. Hiway FCU has also been active in serving underserved communities, something Seifert hopes continues after he leaves. Jeff Schwalen, former VP of Lending for Hiway, will replace Seifert, who will continue to stay involved with the CU as a board member.
