Chief Executive Officer

LES People's Federal Credit Union is seeking a Chief Executive Officer


The Lower East Side People’s Federal Credit Union is seeking a dynamic, experienced, and highly motivated professional to join our ambitious Board and Staff, and to lead the credit union through the next stage in its history. The ideal candidate will have previously served in a successful leadership role at a financial institution, and will embody a deep commitment to the organization’s double bottom line of community impact and financial sustainability. The credit union’s next CEO will be ready and able to lead the Lower East Side People’s FCU as New York City’s premier community development credit union.


The Lower East Side People’s FCU is a nationally-recognized leader in the community development credit union movement, with over $55 million in assets. Founded by community residents in 1986 after the last local bank branch closed, LES People’s FCU’s mission is to provide affordable financial services for its members. The credit union is a bilingual (English/Spanish) full-service financial institution providing a wide range of products and services, including savings and checking accounts, debit and credit cards, a full spectrum of loans, and business accounts, as well as financial education and other development services for individuals, families and businesses. The credit union’s lending features a specific focus on affordable housing for low- and moderate-income homeowners. LES People’s FCU’s membership reflects the diversity of New York City and includes a historic membership base among Latinos and low and moderate-income families, micro and small businesses, and nonprofit community organizations. LES People’s FCU has achieved dramatic growth in recent years, expanding its lending reach to new homeowners and small businesses, and continuously widening the range of retail banking products and financial development services to meet the growing needs of all segments of our community. We recently opened our third branch, and are poised to become New York City’s premier community
development credit union. The current CEO’s planned retirement is occurring after twelve years of successfully leading the organization.
