“It is difficult to convey my emotions as I move on from Greater Nevada Credit Union,” said Murray. “It has been the joy of my life to lead a passion-driven, service-oriented, values-based, people-first, community-minded organization. We have helped so many people live greater by partnering with them to achieve their goals and overcome the many challenges that life can throw their way. I am confident this will continue into the future as the credit union pursues its passion for helping more people live greater.”

We are fortunate to have a talented leadership team to support this transition,” added Joiner. “Our robust strategic planning and service-focused culture give the GNCU Board of Directors confidence that we will continue to provide high-quality, affordable services for member-owners, ensure the safety and soundness of credit union assets, and support communities where our members reside.”
