After thirty years with People First Federal Credit Union, Jeffrey Albert has announced his retirement as President/CEO. Jeff began his career at People First in 1990 initially as a planning consultant and then full time as Marketing and Planning Manager. Prior to being named President/CEO in 2010, Jeff was Senior Vice President - Chief Operating Officer.
In his time at People First, Jeff has helped steer the growth and advancement of the credit union. Through his leadership, People First has grown to over $700 million in assets with over 72,000 members. This was largely driven by the initiatives of increased branch presence, greater electronic access services, the conversion to a community charter and continuation of credit union services for members of credit unions that merged with People First.
When asked about his most rewarding moment over his career, Jeff said leaving the credit union in a position where it can continue to offer new financial opportunities for existing and new members throughout the increasing market area. During his retirement Jeff plans to continue to travel, particularly to visit his son and daughter in law, spend time with his wife, and many trips to Lowes and Home Depot.
Everyone at People First thanks Jeff for his years of service and wishes him a long and happy retirement.
