Tuesday, May 30, 2017 6:40 AM

Steven Pearson

Sunlight Federal Credit Union has named Steven Pearson as its new president/CEO effective June 26, 2017. Credit Union Resources conducted the executive search for the $106 million dollar credit union.

Pearson succeeds Cindy Bennett who is retiring after 18 years at Sunlight, eight as an office manager and 10 as president/CEO. During Bennett's tenure as CEO, she grew the credit union from $57 million to $106 million in assets and has been a part of building or purchasing the credit union’s four locations. Bennett’s dedication to living by the credit union motto of “people helping people” allowed her to provide exceptional member service throughout her role as president/CEO.

Pearson’s credit union expertise in management will be a valuable asset to the executive team at Sunlight FCU. His passion for proactive leadership, with an emphasis in collaboration and strategic planning, will help Sunlight continue to provide quality and convenient services to its members.

Pearson comes to Sunlight from Fellowship Credit Union in Lamar, Colo., where he served as CEO. He was responsible for ensuring financial stability, member satisfaction, strategic direction, vision, leadership, and overall management of the credit union. He also conducted business development activities to promote the growth and development of the credit union. Pearson also analyzed the work flow of the credit union on a continuous basis and made changes to improve efficiency and reduce cost.

Pearson holds a Bachelor of Science in applied management from North American University in Rapid City, S.D.
