Under Richard Romero’s leadership, Seattle Credit Union has grown astronomically.

But to Romero, the winner of CU Times’ Trailblazer Award for CEO of the Year, it’s not the jump of $112.7 million in assets in 2017 that counts the most. Or even membership growth.

“I’m not really interested in leaving a legacy of growing assets,” he said.
