IRVINE, California, June 29, 2018 – McDermott & Bull has been retained by Evangelical Christian Credit Union (ECCU) to lead their search for a Vice President, Head of Business Banking.
This executive recruiting engagement is being conducted by Brandon Biegenzahn, President of McDermott & Bull and Financial Institutions Practice Co-Chair; Bill Brewer, Principal Consultant; and Quyen Doan, Recruiting Associate at McDermott & Bull.
This newly appointed Vice President, Head of Business Banking will influence the Credit Union’s philosophy for business banking and lending and will set and execute a strategy that is responsive to, and anticipatory of, the ongoing needs of the members. This role requires a big thinker who can be malleable to differing needs of different markets. ECCU recognizes the significant opportunity for growth. Across eight key markets, there are 28 million potential retail and business banking members. This Vice President will also be tasked with building out the offering of the business bank. ECCU will seek likeminded (strategy fit), mission-minded (values fit) organizations that provide complimentary products and services as partners in delivering value to its members.
ECCU is more than a credit union, and more than a financial institution, instead it seeks to live out its faith through its employees, modeling God’s love through their service. With a storied history dating back more than 50 years, ECCU has grown to become the leading banking resource serving more than 1,600 church and ministry members with accounts and financing and over 4,200 missionary members in 119 countries with low-cost international banking services. ECCU is committed to donating at least 10% of earnings back to ministries and communities fulfilling the great commission, feeding the poor, supporting the persecuted church worldwide, and more. With nearly $1 billion in total assets, ECCU delivers its services through an efficient capital structure with no branches enabling it to return its earnings to its members through higher returns on savings, lower interest rates on loans, and free services.
