HARRISBURG, PA (July 9, 2018) — PSECU, Pennsylvania’s largest credit union, recently announced the promotion of its Chief Technology Officer, Clifton Van Scyoc, to the Assistant Vice President level.
“PSECU is a digital-first credit union. Instead of investing heavily in brick-and-mortar branches and facilities, we focus our efforts on bringing our more than 430,000 members the most innovative, up-to-date, and useful technology resources possible, so that they can bank conveniently – when they want, where they want, and how they want,” explained PSECU President Greg Smith. “To achieve this, we also need leaders with strong skillsets and solid technology-based experience. Cliff brings these attributes to the table and was a clear fit for the Assistant Vice President role.”
As Assistant Vice President, Chief Technology Officer, Van Scyoc has overall responsibility and accountability for the design, development, release, and maintenance of the technology systems and services used for all of PSECU’s business functions. The role requires that he work closely with credit union colleagues and stakeholders to identify and maximize opportunities that utilize technology to improve business processes, as well as PSECU’s products and services. Providing vision and direction for the credit union’s technology systems while ensuring that they adhere to the organization’s business objectives and requirements is also an essential responsibility of the position.
Prior to joining PSECU in late 2016, Van Scyoc served the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in multiple technology-based positions. He was Chief Technology Officer (January 2014 – December 2016) and Chief Information Security Officer (February 2013 – January 2014) for the Pennsylvania Departments of Human Services, Insurance, and Aging, Chief Information Security Officer for the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry (October 2012 – March 2013), and Deputy Chief Information Security Officer for the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare – now the Department of Human Services (March 2009-October 2012).
“During his tenure at PSECU, Cliff has demonstrated a keen understanding of the technology resources our members need to securely navigate today’s constantly changing, tech-focused banking environment,” said Rick Long, PSECU Vice President of Information Technology Services. “His advancement is sure to support the credit union’s continued growth and success.”
Van Scyoc is a 2001 graduate of Shippensburg University. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems.
“I look forward to serving PSECU’s valued members and ensuring they receive only the best quality products and services from us,” said Van Scyoc. “Technology has played a large part in making PSECU what it is today, and we are dedicated to maintaining that legacy into the future.”
