Heritage Federal Credit Union promotes Steve Bugg to Executive Vice President

NEWBURGH, IN (October 25, 2017) — Heritage Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce that Steve Bugg has been promoted to Executive Vice President.

With the executive responsibilities increasing to support the growth and needs of Heritage Federal Credit Union, former Chief Marketing and Member Service Officer Steve Bugg has been promoted to Executive Vice President. This new position will enable Mr. Bugg to initially continue oversight of the retail, marketing, facilities, business development, and Heritage Financial (the credit union investment division), while increasing his Executive leadership role in multiple departments within the credit union.

Mr. Bugg joined Heritage Federal Credit Union in 2007 as the Vice President of Marketing.  A few years later, his role expanded to include supervision of the HFCU branch network.  As HFCU grew and began construction on its new Headquarters, and with future plans for additional expansion, the Facilities and Business Development departments were created and placed under his supervision (and recently, Heritage Financial).

Mr. Bugg has over 28 years of experience in executive leadership, sales, marketing, financial, and operations management.  He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Evansville in Indiana and is a graduate of the ProCon Leadership Institute.

Ruth Jenkins, CCE, CUERME, President and CEO stated, “Heritage Federal Credit Union is very excited to promote Steve to his new role of Executive Vice President.  Steve has always been a very integral member of our Executive team and his promotion is in support of our long-range strategy in preparing for our future growth and expansion.  We all recognize Steve’s passion for HFCU and his willingness to help any one of us succeed.  Steve has helped us all become comfortable in our community service efforts and is frequently an active participant at many of our community events and serves on numerous boards in leadership roles.  We are very confident that Steve, in his new Executive leadership position, will help lead the credit union as we work to strengthen our organizational structure for HFCU’s future.”
