Endwell, NY – Visions Federal Credit Union announces the retirement of Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer Ed Butler, following 42 years of employment and leadership in the organization.
In 1980, Butler began his career with Visions as a teller and worked his way through the ranks, primarily focused on lending, supervision, and operations. During his time as EVP/COO, he has provided oversight and strategic planning for most departments within Visions, including Human Resources, Information Technology, Business Performance, Governmental Affairs, and Member Experience, among others.
Earlier this year, the New York Credit Union Association (NYCUA) recognized Butler as Professional of the Year, commending his "exemplary commitment to the credit union mission of people helping people." As a representative of Visions in the community, Butler has served on the board of several community organizations and committees, such as the Tioga County Chamber of Commerce, and has attended the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference for over 10 years, where he supports the credit union movement through political advocacy in Washington, DC.
"It's been a joy working with Ed," said Ty Muse, Visions' President/CEO. "He has a great attitude and knows how the business works, inside and out. I give him a lot of credit for where we are today and where we're headed as an organization."
Butler started working for Visions on July 8, 1980. He retired on July 8, 2022. The staff, Board, and fellow retirees of Visions wish him well.
