Carla Altepeter, longtime CitizensFirst Credit Union president/CEO, is making a move to Spokane, Wash.

Effective Sept. 1, Altepeter will serve as president/CEO of Numerica Credit Union. She succeeds 40-year veteran Dennis Cutter.

“Carla has provided tremendous leadership to CitizensFirst over the last two decades,” said Brenda Haines, CitizensFirst board chairperson. “This new position is a testament to her outstanding accomplishments at CitizensFirst. We will miss her vision and leadership both at the credit union and throughout the community. We wish her continued success in her new position.”

Under Altepeter’s tenure, CitizensFirst grew from $91 million in assets in 1992 to $350 million in assets today. In addition to asset growth, Altepeter oversaw expansion of the Oshkosh, Wis.-based credit union to include a total of six new branches.

As the search for a new leader continues, Robert Matz, vice president of finance/mortgage lending and William Wuske, vice president of financial sales/service will serve as co-presidents at CitizensFirst CU.
