President's Message — July 2014
As the new President/CEO of your Credit Union, I'd like to take some time to introduce myself. My name is John F. King and I am the former Executive Vice President/COO of Freedom Credit Union. I have over 40 years of experience in the credit union movement and I am just as enthusiastic about it now as I was back then.
First, I would like to thank Lee T. MacMinn for his years of service and helping Freedom become the great place it is today. Working with Lee for 15 years was a great experience and I wish him the best in his retirement. I would also like to thank the Freedom Credit Union Board of Directors for entrusting me with the responsibility of growing the credit union and offering our valued Members the best financial products in the region.
My primary goal as the new President/CEO of Freedom is to continue in the cooperative spirit of "People Helping People." That is the true credit union difference. We, as Members, work cooperatively to help improve the lives of other Members. It's a motto that I've followed for my entire career and will continue to focus on as I take on my new role at Freedom.
Some of the areas where we plan on growing the credit union in the coming years, with your help, are in technology and lending. Offering Members technologically based products, such as the new Mobile Banking platform that we will introduce later in 2014, will make doing business with Freedom quick, easy and convenient which is a goal we have as an organization. We know that our Members' lives are busy, so we want to take away the stress of managing your finances.
Also, a primary goal is to save our Members more money. We have started a program where Freedom's outbound lending consultants may give you a call to save money on a loan that is elsewhere. If you have a loan at another financial institution, there's a pretty good chance we can save you money. The process can be done completely online with no need to visit our offices. Give us a call - I'm pretty confident we can help save you money each month but we won't know unless you give us a chance.
Members are the reason we exist. If we didn't have your participation in the Credit Union we would not be as successful as we currently are today. This is why it is important to me to know what you think about your credit union. So if you have any suggestions on how to improve Freedom Credit Union, please contact me. On behalf of the Board of Directors and the staff of Freedom, I personally want to thank you for your Membership.
John F. King, President/CEO
