Effective Feb. 18, longtime Executive Vice President Denise Sweet-McGregor will retire after 35 years.

"Being a contributor to AEA Federal Credit Union's growth from a small teachers' credit union to a full service community chartered financial institution, has been a true labor of love," said McGregor.

McGregor's career at the Yuma, Ariz.-based credit union began in 1975 as a teller when the CU's asset size was $8 million. Throughout her career, McGregor was responsible for overseeing marketing, personnel, operations and administration. She has been credited with spearheading strategic planning initiatives such as facility expansions and branching endeavors and championed AEA Federal CU's support for the educational community. For the past 24 years, McGregor has served in a senior management capacity, and even stepped in as interim CEO following the retirement of Ken Bredemeyer in early 2010.
