Shockley is replacing Eugene (Gene) Foley, longtime president and CEO of Harvard University Employees Credit Union, Mass., and member of the PSCU Board of Directors, who is retiring from both roles.

“We are extremely grateful to Gene for his significant contributions to our board and PSCU during his tenure as a director. He has been instrumental in supporting the development of many important strategic initiatives that have positioned PSCU to effectively support the rapidly evolving needs of the credit union industry. The entire board joins me in thanking him for his dedication and service to the CUSO,” said Cathie Tierney, president and CEO of Community First Credit Union, Wisc., and PSCU board chair. “We remain confident that the strong leadership of PSCU’s board and executive team will continue to lead the organization and support its Owner credit unions with further growth and success.”

We look forward to continuing to work with our entire board as we continue to deliver expanded digital capabilities, enhanced security and an unparalleled member experience to our Owner credit unions and their members for years to come.”
