Michael Ferraro will serve as the New York Credit Union Association’s new management consultant for credit unions in the Long Island, Westchester-Rockland and Metropolitan chapters.
Ferraro brings over 11 years of credit union experience to the Association. He spent seven years as the director of credit union sales at CU Direct, a credit union service organization that provides credit unions with a suite of lending products and services, with a focus on the auto lending industry. After leaving CU Direct, Ferraro spent four years as the VP of consumer lending for American Eagle Financial CU, a $1.6 billion-asset institution in Hartford, Connecticut. In that role, he oversaw VISA products, indirect lending, personal loans, direct and refinance auto lending, student lending and an “inside digital engagement center.”
He attended the CUNA Management School and New England College of Finance.
Ferraro will serve the credit unions and chapters currently overseen by Dirck Van Deusen, who last month announced his plan to retire at year-end.
“We’re very pleased to welcome Michael Ferraro as the newest member of the Association’s consulting team,” said Association President/CEO William J. Mellin. “Dirck has served the credit unions in the New York City-area extraordinarily well, and he will certainly be missed. However, Michael brings a unique perspective to this role, and I am confident the credit unions in his chapters will find him to be an extremely valuable resource.”
