The Cooperative Credit Union Association (CCUA) has recognized Greylock Federal Credit Union CEO/President John Bissell as CEO of the Year. The award was presented to Bissell last week during CCUA’s annual luncheon at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut, drawing participants from across the Association’s four-state region.
“The Greylock family is an amazing group of people who work hard to help everyone in the community. It is an honor and a privilege be part of this work and I recognize every day how fortunate I am,” said Bissell. “I am not one for being in the spotlight, but I am grateful that CCUA recognizes how special it is to be a part of the Greylock team.”
Through this award, CCUA recognizes that at the heart of every credit union is its Chief Executive Officer, who is responsible for a myriad of duties that ultimately define the organization's culture and success. Bissell was nominated for the award by his leadership team, unbeknownst to him. Their application to the CCUA read in part, “John leads Greylock through example. His own passion for a fair and just world is evident in his actions and his words. … His commitment to community development, financial empowerment, service to others, and diversity and inclusion personifies the credit union ideology. His driving principles of diversity and inclusion personify the credit union ideology of people helping people.”
