On the Move: Unitus and OnPoint Welcome New Senior Leadership

After a national search, Unitus Community Credit Union‘s Board of Directors has welcomed Steven Stapp as the organization’s new President & CEO.

“Steven is a seasoned CEO with a strong track record of growing credit unions through progressive strategies that enhance service and value to the Membership. His demonstrated commitment to the credit union movement and community service align very well with Unitus’ vision, culture and values” stated Susan Iggulden, Unitus’ Board Chair.  

“I am really looking forward to this opportunity to work with a collaborative Board, strong management team, and expanding membership.  It’s an honor to follow the footsteps of a legendary CEO and continue to build upon the culture of community and service that Unitus has firmly established in the Pacific Northwest” said Stapp.

Mr. Stapp recently served as President & CEO of San Francisco Federal Credit Union since August 2008.  During his tenure San Francisco Federal Credit Union grew from $650 million in assets to just over $1 billion through a focused and sustained strategic planning process that provided strong loan growth, comprehensive deposit products, and expansion of online channels, branch locations, and community charter. A significant achievement was membership growth which increased over 12% during 2015. 

The credit union was also the California Dora Maxwell award winner for its social commitment to San Francisco and regularly contributes to community organizations such as San Francisco Food Bank, AIDS Walk SF, Larkin Street, Women’s Community Clinic, SF Fire Toy Drive, and the YMCA.  “Steven is a strong leader who has demonstrated his commitment to people helping people through his support of members, employees, and the communities he serves. We have served on industry boards together and I am excited that the Board has chosen Steven as our Credit Union’s next President & CEO” commented Patricia Smith, Unitus’ retiring President & CEO.
