Credit Union Leadership

Gulf Winds is led by a volunteer Board of Directors that selflessly give their time and talent to ensure the credit union is safe, sound and secure.

The Board of Directors, elected by the general membership, appoints two important volunteer committees, the Supervisory Committee and the Enterprise Risk Management Committee. The Board also hires an Executive Team, composed of the President/CEO and others, who manage the daily activities of the credit union.

We are proud to have leaders that believe in the genuine, personal way credit unions do business.
