Leominster Credit Union announced that Gordon R. Edmonds, president/CEO, will retire on Sept. 30. Edmonds joined Leominster Credit Union in 2001 as senior vice president of lending. He was appointed president/CEO in June 2007.
Chairman of the Board Amedeo Bilotta credited Edmonds with leading Leominster Credit Union through a period of extraordinary growth. “Gordon Edmonds has been an exemplary president. Under his leadership the Credit Union has nearly double its asset size, and he was the leading force behind the construction of its new state-of-the-art executive and operations building in downtown Leominster,” said Bilotta. “He is well-respected throughout the credit union by directors and employees alike and is highly regarded in the local communities where he has been involved with a number of civic organizations.”
According to Edmonds, the decision to retire was a difficult one. “Serving for the past five years as president and CEO has been the most rewarding experience of my 37-year career. I am very proud of the accomplishments we have achieved during my tenure, and I am confident that I will be leaving an organization that is well-positioned to achieve much more in the future,” said Edmonds. “I now look forward to having more time to spend with my family both here and at our home in Florida.”
