CUtoday.info (September 16, 2018) - The $1.3-billion Firefly Credit Union has announced a new CEO to succeed Bill Raker, who is retiring.

The credit union said it has selected Dale Turner to lead the organization, effective in November.  Turner currently serves as EVP/chief sales and service officer for San Diego County Credit Union in San Diego, where his responsibilities include defining and driving consumer-centric financial solutions through SDCCU’s 43 branch locations, call centers, and the organization’s team members, Firefly said.

“Dale is a highly qualified leader that brings energy and demonstrated success to our organization,” said Sarah Lietz, Firefly board chair. “He is thrilled with the Firefly brand and is well-equipped to help us deliver on our brand promise to guide our members toward healthy financial lives.”

Turner has local roots, having spent several years working in Minnesota after growing up and attending school in the Midwest.  He holds a bachelor’s degree in communications from Wabash College and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Graduate School of Banking program.

‘Humbled & Honored’

“I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to represent such an amazing organization in the growing and vibrant Greater Twin Cities Community,” said Turner. “I look forward to continuing the Firefly mission in providing consumers with products and services that assist in their lifelong financial well-being.” 

Turner succeeds Firefly President/CEO Bill Raker, who is retiring after 21 years as the credit union’s leader. 

The credit union serves more than 75,000 members in the Greater Twin Cities Community with nine branch locations.
