Presenter - Michael Armstrong, Alcoa Community FCU

Michael ArmstrongMichael Armstrong is a life-long resident of Arkansas and first entered the world of financial services his sophomore year while attending Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, AR.  After graduation, he moved to Central Arkansas and held positions ranging from personal banker to Vice President in large and smaller community banks.  Michael has attended a wide variety of leadership and management courses and is formally trained in commercial banking.

During the Great Recession, Michael changed career paths and focused his attention on K-12 public education in Arkansas.  Michael spent four years as a middle school classroom teacher and two more as business manager and CFO of Arkansas school districts.  The itch to return to financial services was too great and in July 2015, Michael accepted a position at Alcoa Community FCU after striking up a friendship with his CEO, Steve Brown, through Rotary.

Michael has achieved two master’s degrees: M.B.A. in 2005 and Master’s in Education in 2011.
