Executive Leadership Announcement from TDECU
One of my duties as Chairman of TDECU's Board of Directors is to ensure clear and consistent guidance for our organization, particularly in times of change. Today, I am announcing a change in leadership with the departure of President and CEO, Stephanie Sherrodd. After 17 years with the credit union, including more than 8 years at the helm, Stephanie is resigning from TDECU effective April 30.
Under Stephanie's leadership, TDECU experienced unprecedented growth, expanded products and services to a growing membership base, and became recognized as a best-in-class credit union across the industry. On behalf of the Board of Directors, our Leadership Team, and Employees, we are forever grateful for her leadership and we wish her all the best in her new pursuits.
"I feel fortunate to have served the TDECU Board of Directors, employees, and Members these past years, and am proud of our team's unwavering commitment to our credit union mission, and our community,” states Sherrodd. “I am grateful for the relationships and the partnerships that have allowed our team to deliver on the growth and success of our credit union. Thank you to the community of Lake Jackson who have embraced my family —we look forward to our next chapter and the future."
Please join me in congratulating Isaac Johnson, TDECU's SVP and Chief Administrative, Legal and Diversity Officer, who will lead the organization as Interim CEO. In addition to a proven history of leadership at TDECU, USAA, and Wells Fargo, Isaac proudly serves our nation as Commanding General, 351st Civil Affair Command. We are confident Isaac is the right leader to ensure business continuity for our Members and Employees as we engage in a formal search for our next CEO.
While change is never easy, we are excited to see what this new chapter holds for our credit union and remain committed to providing our Members the resources they need to improve their lives through growth, innovation and digital transformation.
