CEO David A. L’Ecuyer Honored with a 2013 Credit Union Heroes Award by Banker and Tradesman Publication

Central One Federal Credit Union which offers the highest quality products and services possible to both the Savers and the Borrowers, announced that its president and CEO David A. L’Ecuyer was recognized by Banker and Tradesman with a 2013 Credit Union Heroes Award for outstanding contributions to the credit union industry. Mr. L’Ecuyer received the award at a banquet held at the Omni Parker House, Boston, MA.

The Credit Union Heroes Award honors individuals who have made a widely recognized and significant contribution in advancing the credit union industry and their local communities. Mr. L’Ecuyer is receiving the award for his decades of contributions in the community credit union industry which includes working with more than 100 charitable and service organizations, from the Red Cross of Central Massachusetts, Veteran’s Inc., You Inc., Rotary Clubs, and the Councils of Aging, as well as state, local and national credit union leagues.

Mr. L’Ecuyer has held key positions at Central One Federal Credit Union over the years. He started at the credit union as a loan officer in 1990, he ascended to CEO in 1995, and has overseen the institution's growth from a closed shop open only to electrical and power plant workers to a community credit union with several branches and hundreds of millions in assets under management.

His philosophy for success is based around customer service. “We didn’t really have a growth goal when I started as president – it was really about making sure we had all the products and services to meet our members’ needs and were profitable, so that we could offer a certain amount of security to our members,” he said. “We make customer satisfaction the number one priority. I think a lot of people profess that, but what we do is we actually measure it.”

The customer service is measured via monthly credit union surveys that are sent out to random credit union members.  The results go directly to Central One Federal Credit Union board of directions.  As a result; “The answers to those questionnaires go directly to my bosses. I challenge you to find any bank in the country that would ask their customers what they thought of their bank and have the responses go directly to their board of directors. It’s certainly rare,” he said. Making sure Central One’s staff make customer satisfaction a top priority is something “we’ve been doing consistently for over 20 years, and I think it’s been a key driver of our success.”

Kind Words From our Friend, Steve Levine of Remax Prestige

Excerpt from Shrewsbury Latern Article. "They may not be the biggest bank in Central Mass, but they sure have had the biggest impact I’ve ever seen on the local Shrewsbury community. Proving once again that they are here to define themselves as great corporate citizens, President Dave L’Ecuyer announced they they were taking a lead role in helping Shrewsbury students once again, by donating $20,000 to help sponsor the Shrewsbury High School athletic program for the coming fiscal year. This is in response to the announcement a few weeks ago that the School Committee has finally voted to allow advertising on school property, and will be offering ad packages to corporate partners who are willing to help fund our programming needs. This is something long overdue that many people, myself included, have been trying to get on the board since the Tony Bent days, and it should be a great asset at a time when we need it most."
