SEATTLE, WA (June 20, 2016) — Your Credit Union Partner (YCUP) announced today that Terry Gresswell, has joined the firm as Senior Consultant, Compliance and Audit Services.

YCUP specializes in strategic planning, loan and membership growth strategies, regulatory compliance and audit support, board governance, and community development. The firm has enjoyed five consecutive years of strong annual growth driven by credit union referrals – growth fueled, in part, by the demand for more compliance and audit support.
“With the growing compliance and audit demand, the time was finally right to invite long-time friend and credit union collaborator Terry Gresswell to the team,” Butterfield continued. “Terry’s compliance and audit expertise will allow YCUP to increase its scale to expand the number of audit and policy review projects annually.”
Gresswell has more than 25 years of compliance and audit experience among a diverse group of organizations, including smaller credit unions with less than $100 million in assets, banks with more than $1 billion in assets, and other for-profit businesses. His experience began in 1984 in the Audit Department of Puget Sound National Bank. In 1990, he was promoted to Commercial/Consumer Loan Officer with Puget Sound National Bank, where he had oversight of all branch operations and finance audits. In 1997, Gresswell was appointed Vice President of Operations at America West Bank where he had operational oversight of 40 branches. Responsibilities included policy, procedures, internal audits, and compliance. He also served as the controller for the General Ledger. Gresswell moved to Catholic Credit Union in 2003. As part of his compliance and audit oversight, he developed operational and compliance policies, and managed compliance and internal auditing. In November of 2011, Gresswell joined Big Island FCU, and was promoted to President/CEO in June of 2013. He retired in August to move back to Washington State to be closer to family. Gresswell and his wife, Sue, now live in University Place, Wash.
“Terry has the right blend of experience, knowledge, personality, passion for credit unions, and know-how,” Butterfield concluded. “We share the same professional and ethical values that have led to amazing results for our credit union partners.
