USALLIANCE Financial announces transition of CEO

The credit union congratulates CEO Kris VanBeek, on his new opportunity and wishes him well on his next adventure

RYE, NY (April 4, 2023) — The Board of Directors of USAlliance Federal Credit Union (dba USALLIANCE Financial) announced today that after over a decade as CEO of USALLIANCE, Kristin P. VanBeek will be stepping down to return to his Massachusetts roots and accept a position as CEO at Rockland Federal Credit Union, replacing retiring CEO Tom White. With this announcement, the Board will begin the search for a new CEO to join the existing strong executive team in place to lead the Credit Union in this time of transition.

The transition is planned to occur in the second quarter of this year to ensure a smooth process and will not affect member service or experience. VanBeek will be leaving USALLIANCE with vast opportunities for the future, a strong capital ratio, improved asset quality, industry-leading technology, upgraded information security, and a positive servant leadership-oriented culture. “USALLIANCE remains committed to providing unparalleled member experience with our products and services. We have a number of initiatives in process for this year to improve every way we interact with our members, and this transition will not impact plans. The Credit Union is in a tremendous position to keep to building upon the foundations put in place under Kris’s leadership.” Stated Simon Walton, USALLIANCE Board Chair.

“I am blessed to have been a part of such an amazing organization and proud of all that we’ve accomplished together over the past 11 years,” VanBeek said. “I hope to see and work towards both organizations growing stronger together as peers and partners in the coming months and years.”

During his tenure at USALLIANCE Financial, Mr. VanBeek has led the institution to become a progressive and high-tech Credit Union.  By capitalizing on the organization’s core strengths and introducing forward-focused technology and systems solutions, VanBeek has driven success across the board at USALLIANCE. Specifically, success has been seen in loan, asset, and membership growth, as well as an expansion in services, products, and technologies. Most importantly, VanBeek has worked to provide USALLIANCE with the foundation of an outstanding depth of management, staff, and culture for the future.

VanBeek and USALIANCE have bittersweet sentiments about parting but want to celebrate all our successes of the last decade and are excited for the next chapter of both organizations.
