Navy FCU On A Recruiting Binge
TORONTO – Navy FCU is about to embark on one of the biggest hiring plans ever for a credit union. The $25-billion credit union plans to hire about 920 new employees in 2007, expanding its workforce by 18% to about 6,000 worldwide, according to Cutler Dawson, president of the world’s largest credit union. The new hires will not only staff the credit union's ambitious branch expansion—45 new facilities over the next five years—but also its new call center in Pensacola, Fla., its member service centers and support staff, Dawson told The Credit Union Journal Thursday during NAFCU’s annual convention. “We’re really trying to build our member services and support, and trying to make it even better,” said Dawson.
