Spokane-based Numerica Credit Union has named a new chief executive officer: Carla Altepeter, the longtime CEO of CitizensFirst Credit Union in Oshkosh, Wisc.
Altepeter replaces Dennis Cutter, who will retire Aug. 31 after 40 years as Numerica’s president and CEO.
Altepeter has served as president and CEO of CitizensFirst since 1992. She will begin at Numerica Sept. 1.
Her commitment to that community was most appealing to the Numerica board of directors, Cutter said in a news release this morning.
“Her most notable quality is her strong belief in the philosophy of ‘people helping people,’” he said. “These qualities run parallel to those of Numerica, making her a perfect fit.”
Numerica has more than 90,000 members throughout Central and Eastern Washington and North Idaho and more than $1 billion in assets.
