SAN FRANCISCO – After more than 25 years working in various aspects of the credit union movement including 15 years as CEO of the $2.9 billion Patelco CU and four years as NCUA Chairman, Ed Callahan will retire on Dec. 31. Known for his dedication to credit unions, his sense of innovation and willingness to take risks, Callahan is credited with making Patelco the first financial in the Bay area to offer debit cards and for maintaining an attitude of being on the leading edge. Fans of Callahan turned out for a black-tie retirement party in his honor on Oct. 19 in San Francisco to celebrate their friend and associate. Andy Hunter, currently Patelco’s President and Chief Operating Officer, was selected by the credit union’s board to succeed Callahan. Hunter has been with Patelco since 1990 and in his current position since 1998.
