KENSINGTON, Md. – After 16 years with Lafayette Federal Credit Union, President and CEO Bill Brooks announced this year that he would leave the credit union to venture out on his own. Brooks’ plan is to create, with others in the credit union community, a consulting firm (CU Prosper) to help credit unions with mortgage lending, member business lending, and other credit union issues. Brooks will likely be handling the mortgage side of CU Prosper once it’s up and running around the first of the year, as Lafayette had a very successful mortgage program during his tenure-nearly one mortgage for every day in 2002. Brooks also plans to volunteer at two faith-based credit unions in Baltimore and Alexandria, Va. Lafayette has yet to name Brooks’ successor.
