Brandon Michaels has officially taken flight as the new President and Chief Executive Officer of JSC Federal Credit Union, one of Texas’ largest credit unions.
Michaels succeeds Michael Brown, who recently retired after 32 years of service of the $2.2 billion credit union based in Houston.
Michaels recently served as president and chief executive officer of Mazuma Credit Union ($660M) in Kansas City, where he assembled a transformative team that pushed the envelope of innovative thinking in the credit union industry. Under his leadership, Mazuma Credit Union achieved record-breaking financial and member experience success.
“We are excited about the future of JSC FCU under Brandon’s inclusive leadership and innovative thinking,” says JSC FCU’s Board Chairman David Whittle. “He is the right person to lead JSC FCU into the future, and expand the credit union’s services and value proposition for our members.”
Michaels is a third generation credit union CEO who grew up in the credit union movement. Michaels previously held executive level positions at credit unions in his home state of California before he relocated to Kansas City.
Aside from his passion of credit unions, Michaels is an avid pilot who enjoys spending much of his free time in the sky. Despite his love of world travel, nothing is more satisfying that coming home to his family. Michaels graduated from The University of Oklahoma and is pursuing his EMBA from Washington State University. He is also a 2011 High Honors graduate from Western CUNA Management School.
“I am honored and humbled to be selected as the new CEO of JSC FCU,” says Michaels. “I am excited to leverage what has been built to launch into a robust future for our members and team. The team at JSC FCU is awesome and are eager to impact our members and communities in even greater ways.”
During Brown’s tenure, JSC FCU’s assets grew from less than $100 million to $2.1 billion. JSC FCU also continued to expand throughout the Houston Bay Area, growing to more than 128,000 members. Brown was also responsible for numerous upgrades, expansion of branches, and the implementation of several innovative services.
