KALAMAZOO, Mich. – After 30 years of service, Bob Hunt, president/CEO of Educational Community Credit Union, retired on Feb. 1. Hunt took the helm in 1975 when assets were $7 million and membership was 6,700. Under his leadership, ECCU has grown to $228 million in assets with more than 36,000 members. He also successfully navigated ECCU through two mergers and four charter expansions. “It has been both an honor and privilege to serve in credit union management,” Hunt said. “My thanks to our credit union’s volunteers, management, staff and to all of our members for their support over the decades. It’s been a wonderful life serving others and helping people.” Hunt heads into retirement just as the Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Services approved the expansion of ECCU’s charter to include service to the educational community in 16 additional surrounding counties, bringing the total to 21 counties in southwest Michigan. Charles Cornelius, executive vice president of ECCU, who has been with the credit union for 25 years, has been named the new president/CEO. Credit Union Times will offer a full feature story on Hunt’s retirement in the Feb. 16 issue.
