Following a career in the military, E.C. Williams found his true calling in the credit union movement.
He worked his way up from an entry-level position to become executive vice president/chief operating officer for MacDill FCU (now Grow Financial FCU) and GTE Financial CU, both located in Tampa, Fla. He received the CUNA Lending Council’s Phil Greer Lifetime Achievement Award on Tuesday.
“I discovered I loved the philosophy of credit unions, I loved helping members, and I was passionate about helping other employees strive to achieve their full potential,” says Williams, accepting the award from CUNA Lending Council Chair Bill Vogeney (left) and GTE Financial CU CEO Joe Brancucci (at right).
The CFPB released the results of its survey on debt collection Thursday, prior to its discussion on the same topic. The survey, which consisted of 53 questions about first- and third-party debt collection, does not specifically identify credit unions.
