(PRWEB) July 15, 2015
Space Coast Credit Union (SCCU) is pleased to announce the promotion of Kim Lynn to the position of vice president of operations.
Lynn began her career at SCCU fifteen years ago as a member service representative at the Melbourne Branch. At that time, SCCU had just over 120,000 members and $700 million in assets. Lynn’s leadership qualities were recognized and she quickly advanced through the ranks of branch management. Then, in 2009 she was promoted to the director of retail services for South Brevard/Indian River Counties. As Lynn advanced her career within the credit union, SCCU also grew and now has more than 300,000 members and 58 branches. In addition, in 2014 alone, SCCU provided members with $792 million in auto loans and $212 million in mortgage loans.
Throughout all of the positions that she has held, Lynn implemented operational improvements as she worked to develop her employees. In addition, she has been a leader in many special initiatives crucial to the credit union’s success, particularly the merger between SCCU and Eastern Florida Financial Credit Union.
Timothy M. Antonition, executive vice president of retail operations and chief operating officer for SCCU, said “Kim’s aptitude for identifying operational efficiencies and effectiveness combined with her ability to help her staff grow into leadership roles at the credit union made her the ideal candidate for the position of vice president of operations.” Antonition continued, “Our operational efficiency enables us to expediently provide our members with the financial services they need to run their household. Further, growing employees into the future leaders of the company helps retain valuable knowledge and experience that enable us to better protect our members’ financial interests.”
In Lynn’s new role of vice president of operations, she will oversee operations services, facilities, card services, payment services, and the loss prevention/compliance departments. She is already spearheading several initiatives with her managers, including EMV chip technology for credit and debit cards, alternative payment methods, and paperless notices – to name a few.
