Together Credit Union appoints new Chief Financial Officer

Lawrence “Larry” Skube promoted after six years of service as VP & Controller

ST. LOUIS, MO (January 22, 2024) — Together Credit Union is thrilled to announce the promotion and appointment of Lawrence “Larry” Skube to Chief Financial Officer.  As a key executive management team member, Skube will represent the strategic financial perspective in enterprise planning and decision-making and provide strategic leadership to the finance and accounting functions.

“Larry Skube has taken on additional responsibilities across the credit union’s finance and accounting departments, including leading project initiatives that have led to Together Credit Union’s strong financial position today,” said Bob McKay, President and CEO.  “His drive for innovation and experience within the financial services industry will help lead the credit union going forward.”

Skube began his professional career at Price Waterhouse Coopers as an auditor, primarily in the insurance industry, before moving into an accounting and reporting role with Household International, his first position in the financial services industry.  Skube then advanced his knowledge and career through various accounting and finance positions for notable organizations like HSBC, ABN AMRO Bank N.V., and Busey Bank, where he developed a passion for mortgage banking and serving the needs of both wholesale and retail clients. 

“You have to find the sweet spot given our desire to grow our balance sheet and earnings while at the same time ensuring we are laser-focused on the needs of our members.  This is often a delicate balance,” said Skube.  “Helping members realize their goals and aspirations through our products and services is very rewarding.”

Skube joined Together Credit Union in 2018 as Vice President and Controller, helping shape organizational growth by evaluating financial performance, forecasting market trends to mitigate risk, addressing ways to improve cost efficiencies, and pursuing opportunities that increase revenue.  Since then, the credit union has grown from $1.7 billion to $2.4 billion in assets.

Larry Skube holds a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from Illinois State University and a Master of Business Administration in Finance from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.  He also holds a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certification from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
