ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Tom Shoemaker has been named interim president and CEO of Kirtland Federal Credit Union, replacing David Seely who will be on paid leave until his retirement next March.
Shoemaker will lead the $790 million organization with a new strategic plan that is being developed as a result of the decision made earlier in the year not to merge with Sandia Laboratory FCU, according to a news release from the credit union.
The credit union’s board of directors announced the appointment earlier this week.
Seely had been president and CEO since 1990, when the cooperative institution held about $80 million in assets, according to the release. The credit union now serves more than 48,000 members with four branches in Albuquerque.
