City County CU CEO Bill Marquardt Dies
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – William “Bill” Marquardt, CEO of City County Credit Union, has died after a brief battle with cancer.
Mr. Marquardt began in credit unions in 1989 with Tropical Telco CU in Miami, before joining City County CU in 1993. “Throughout his 21 years in the credit union arena, Bill was known as a visionary, initiating programs that were unique in the industry,” the credit union said in a statement. “His ideas of assisting credit impaired members blossomed into the Encore ‘second chance’ accounts.”
Marquardt also pioneered the opening of AutoBranch, a CU auto dealership. Marquardt was active in numerous volunteer roles within CUs, and during his career at CCCU oversaw growth to $275 million in assets from $67 million.
Lloyd Gill has been named CCCU’s acting president/CEO.
