FORT COLLINS, CO (August 1, 2017) — Elevations Credit Union has named two executives to its senior leadership team. Pete DuPré and Ray Lindley will serve as Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Chief Lending Officer (CLO), respectively.
DuPré joins the Elevations team from First Data Corporation, where he served as CIO of the organization’s Latin America Region. An experienced IT leader, he also led teams at Amazon Web Services, Vantiv, and Micro Focus.
“I am eager to bolster Elevations’ technological capabilities to deliver even greater value to our members,” said DuPré.
As Elevations Credit Union’s CIO, DuPré will develop and drive the implementation of the credit union’s technology strategy and lead IT operations, business applications and digital channels teams.
“Pete is a seasoned and proven executive who will help us fulfill our technology strategy,” said President and CEO Gerry Agnes. “We’re fortunate to have Pete on our team.”
Lindley brings vast expertise in consumer, retail, mortgage and business lending operations to his new role. Most recently, he served as Elevations’ Senior Vice President of Lending, and prior to joining Elevations in 2013, Lindley led teams at Washington Mutual and Chase.
“Ray’s leadership was instrumental in Elevations Credit Union’s recognition as the No. 1 credit union mortgage lender in the state,” added Agnes. “He’s a natural fit to continue guiding and growing our lending lines of business.”
In his new role, Lindley will continue enhancing Elevations’ lending processes and offerings. Having successfully launched Elevations’ commercial lending team, he looks forward to introducing new small business banking products and services to the community.
“I’m incredibly proud of all that our lending teams have accomplished in the last few years and remain grateful for their commitment to serving our members,” explained Lindley. “But I’m even more excited about the opportunity before us to continue innovating and improving our members’ lives and businesses.”
