Jay Reed, Chief Information Officer for Service 1st Federal Credit Union, was recently elected to the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association’s (PCUA) Board of Directors.
“I’m eager to begin serving on the Association’s Board and to start working with my fellow directors to assist our Pennsylvania credit unions in remaining the best financial option for our members,” said Jay Reed. “I’m looking forward to sharing not only my technical experience, but my enthusiasm for our community. At Service 1st, supporting community is just one of seven core values that define our commitment to our credit union family. I’m looking forward to working with fellow credit unions to make our communities even stronger.”
Reed received his degree in Electronics Technology in 1997 from the Pennsylvania College of Technology, where he graduated with highest honors. Since then, he’s enjoyed progressive careers in manufacturing, healthcare, and community banking, where he focused on information technology and security, before taking on his current role in 2008.
“We are pleased to have Jay represent Service 1st on PCUA’s Board of Directors; Jay will be a great director,” said Bill Lavage, President/CEO, Service 1st.
Pennsylvania Credit Union Association board members are elected by credit union asset category. In the 2017 election cycle, three seats were up for election, one in Asset Category 1 (total assets up to $50 million), one in Asset Category 2 (total assets greater than $50 million to $250 million), and one in Asset Category 3 (total assets greater than $250 million). Reed was elected in Category 3.
Members of the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association have also elected Jeff DeBree, CEO of Penn East Federal Credit Union, located in Scranton; and Joe Gimble, CEO of Citymark Federal Credit Union, located in Wilkes-Barre. Their terms will begin at the conclusion of the Association’s Annual Meeting of Members in May.
