Credit Union of the Rockies Celebrates President/CEO Anniversary

GOLDEN, CO, April 19, 2022 – April 14th marks the one-year anniversary of Peter Bullard as the President/CEO of Credit Union of the Rockies.

Peter’s career can be traced back to 2010 when he joined Credit Union of the Rockies as a Loan Officer in Frisco, Colorado. Over the next 12-years, Peter worked as the Branch Manager of the credit union’s Summit County location, Director of Education/Training/and IT Systems (DEATS), Vice President of Member Experience (Marketing, Operations, Lending, and Information Technology), and as the credit union’s Senior Vice President.

In early 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Peter was appointed Interim CEO and quickly worked to stabilize the credit union’s staff and overall financial performance. One year later, Peter was appointed as the permanent President/CEO of Credit Union of the Rockies.

Credit Union of the Rockies Board President, Nate Peterson shared, "I want to congratulate Peter on his 1-year anniversary as our CEO. Peter's love for this organization and passion for our members is unmatched in the credit union industry. We wish him many more successful years as CEO and look forward to all the great things he will do."

Peter is a hands-on leader whose shared industry passion for community service and helping the underserved is tied closely to the same values to which he was raised. As the President/CEO, Peter was tasked with realigning the credit union’s culture and company priorities. In his first year as President/CEO, Peter and his team significantly grew the credit union’s loan portfolio and celebrated historically low staff turnover.

“I am extremely passionate about helping people in our mountain communities of Colorado. I was humbled and honored to be appointed the President/CEO of this organization that I love and immediately got to work”, stated Bullard. “There is enormous untapped potential for Credit Union of the Rockies as we strive to enrich the lives of more people in the communities that we serve. By collaborating with our Board of Directors and our dedicated staff, we will continue to devote ourselves to positively impacting the members of Credit Union of the Rockies.”
