The Minnesota Credit Union Foundaton (MnCUF) and SPIRE Credit Union are proud to recognize Tom Hirte as a CU Builder for his service to the credit union movement upon his retirement from the Board of Directors.
Hirte served on the Board of Directors for 28 years, including 15 years as Board Chair. He was also on various Board and ad hoc committees, including the Governance Committee, Supervisory Committee, and Credit Committee. Hirte stepped down from the Board on April 26, 2021 in order to have more time to serve in the community of San Antonio, TX, where he currently resides.
"For nearly three decades, Tom Hirte made significant contributions to SPIRE Credit Union. Hirte always championed for SPIRE and the SPIRE team and his influence will continue to have a lasting impact," said SPIRE President/CEO Dan Stoltz.
In total, 77 individuals have been designated as Credit Union Builders over the past nine years. The names of the recipients and the contributing credit unions are permanently displayed in the Minnesota Credit Union Network’s lobby as a tribute to those who have dedicated time and energy to building the credit union movement.
