Firefly Credit Union - BURNSVILLE, Minn. (October 31, 2016) - Firefly Credit Union is proud to announce that their President/CEO, Bill Raker, has been inducted into the Credit Union Executive Society (CUES) Hall of Fame.


Credit union executives from across the country gathered at an annual networking event held in Savannah, Georgia, the week of Oct. 23rd. This event highlighted Hall of Fame inductees, one being our very own Bill Raker. Inductees are nominated by the CUES board of directors for lifetime achievement and contributions to the credit union movement.


They are recognized annually for their:


  • Contributions to their profession and the credit union industry
  • Involvement in community service
  • Education and history of self-improvement
  • Contributions to CUES


Throughout his 15 years as Firefly’s President/CEO, Bill’s guidance and achievements have not gone unnoticed as he has been awarded with national credit union recognitions for lending, marketing and community service.


A true credit union enthusiast, Bill actively serves at the executive level on several regional and national committees and corporate boards; the CUNA Governmental Affairs Subcommittee, CUNA’s Due Diligence Task Force, CU Service Centers Executive Committee and the Minnesota Credit Union Network, to name a few.


At a local level, Bill has served on several boards and committees and he continues to enhance and give back to the Greater Twin Cities community in which he belongs, in which his members belong.


For his many contributions to the credit union movement, Bill has been honored with MNCUN’s Outstanding Professional of the Year, World Council of Credit Union’s International Executive Volunteer Corps for his industry efforts in Paraguay and Cambodia, and now an induction into the Credit Union Hall of Fame.


Bill has served as a true inspiration to those in the credit union industry near and far, and here at Firefly, we are proud to learn from one of the greats.
