Business Partners, a credit union service organization in Northridge, Calif., has named financial services veteran Pamella Easley as its president and chief executive officer.

Most recently, Easley was CEO of the $550 million-asset American First Credit Union in La Habra, Calif.

Easley brings decades of financial services experience to the post, "including a proven track record in rebuilding companies in the banking and credit union industries," said chairman David Maus. He praised Easley's operational and enterprise risk management expertise and for "successfully leading risk consulting practices for credit unions, and regional and large-scale banks."

Business Partners teams up with credit unions to make commercial loans that credit unions may be unable to make on their own. In her new role Easley will be responsible for expanding credit unions' business lending.

Business Partners will get back to its roots of serving credit union partners, many of which are now expanding their "balance sheet diversification," options, Easley said in a news release.
