Credit Union of Georgia’s board of directors have decided to name its former vice president of accounting and finance as the credit union’s new president and CEO.
Brian Albrecht’s appointment will be effective Aug. 1, following the planned retirement of president and CEO Jerry Ragan.
“We believe Brian is an outstanding choice to serve as the new president and CEO and lead Credit Union of Georgia,” said David Digiovanni, chairman of Credit Union of Georgia’s Board of Directors. “Brian has a very strong financial, lending and operational background that we feel will serve as an excellent president and CEO and guiding voice of our credit union.”
Albrecht has more than 12 years of experience in the financial industry; and he spent 10 of those years at Credit Union of Georgia. Albrecht began his career with Credit Union of Georgia as a member service representative and worked his way up to branch manager before becoming director of lending, which made him responsible for oversight of the credit union’s lending program. Eventually, he stepped into the role of vice president. He’s been directly involved with strategic planning, consumer and commercial lending, product development, digital delivery channels, payment services, industry partnerships, political advocacy and overall company financial health.
“I’ve had the unique opportunity to spend the last 10 years of my career working and growing alongside Credit Union of Georgia,” Albrecht said. “Today, I’m honored by the board’s willingness to entrust me in the opportunity to lead as presiden tand CEO. The credit union has experienced tremendous growth over the last few years, and I look forward to working closely with our board, staff and membership so that we can continue to provide our members with extraordinary products, services and experiences.”
