Texas Plains FCU CEO Shares How First Two Months on the Job have Been
Wednesday, April 10, 2013 6:25 AM

Two months ago, Kasha Young took the helm of Texas Plains FCU after its long-term CEO Terry McCormick retired.  And while the first two months have been quite busy, Young says the transition has been pretty seamless.

“Terry spent considerable time preparing me for the new role and I am very thankful for that,” Young says.  “Many of the decisions made prior to the transition were done together.  And since I was already allowed my input in all matters, I am comfortable with the way the daily operations are running at this point.” 

Young says she is deeply appreciative of the support she has received from the staff, board, and membership of the credit union, as well as others in the movement. 

“There are just some really good people in the credit union business,” she says.

Focused on the future, Young says the credit union has scheduled a planning session for the leaders (visionaries) to formulate strategic initiatives for growing the credit union and increasing operational efficiency.

“Going forward, I obviously would like to see this credit union continue to grow and offer those services that our members find important in meeting their financial needs,” she adds.

Young has more than nine years of experience working for Amarillo-based credit union and was promoted to chief financial officer in 2003.  She graduated from West Texas A&M University in May 2000 with a bachelor of business administration in accounting. She earned her certified public accountant license in September 2003, and graduated from Southwest CUNA Management School in 2009.

Recently, Young accepted a volunteer position as the training chairwoman for the Amarillo Area Chapter of Credit Unions.
