President/CEO of Greater TEXAS FCU Announces Retirement
Thursday, June 18, 2015 6:55 AM

After 40 years of service to credit unions, Greater TEXAS Federal Credit Union President and CEO Tommy Seargeant has announced his retirement, effective Dec. 31, 2015.

Seargeant started out as an assistant manager in 1976 and rose to the position of president and CEO in 1981. Since his arrival and under his direction, the credit union has grown from $4 million in assets to over $550 million and from one location to 18. GTFCU said in a press release that over the past 40 years, their continued growth and success has been largely due to Seargeant’s leadership and vision.

The membership and credit union staff have been the focus of his daily activities, and with the board of directors, Seargeant has ensured that the credit union provides innovative services to its diverse membership.

Seargeant believes in motivating, encouraging, and rewarding employees. His reward is a happy and tenured staff. GTFCU was named one of the Austin American-Statesman’s Top Workplaces for the last three consecutive years. He credits the staff as the reason GTFCU received this award. Collectively, the credit union employees have more than 1,300 years of service.

Seargeant is a 1968 graduate of Southwest Texas State College (now Texas State University), where he received a bachelor’s in business administration. He served on active duty in the United States Army from 1968-1972, including a tour in Vietnam. He served in the Texas Army National Guard for many years, receiving numerous commendations and awards. He retired from the National Guard as a colonel on Aug. 31, 1999, after 31 years of military service.
