Terry Richardson

It’s all about the member for Board Chairman Terry Richardson, but for over 34 years, to the team at Pioneer West Virginia Federal Credit Union, he has simply been the personification of an extraordinary coach.

“What I’ve enjoyed the most about serving on the board is being able to help the members and that in many ways we can be their voice,” said Richardson, who has been proud of his time spent at the Charleston, W.Va.-based credit union. “My advice for anyone considering joining a board is first, absolutely do it. There is nothing more rewarding than being in service to something greater than yourself. Second, once they are in they must always remember who they are representing and that is the members.” Richardson got his start on the credit committee at the prompting of some colleagues in the school system where he was working 30 years ago. He would serve on other committees for four years before being elected to the board.
