WYHY Federal credit union announces new chief financial officer

Cheyenne, WY, September 23, 2019: WyHy Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce the selection of its new Vice President/Chief Financial Officer – Paul Yang, who brings nearly 20 years of leadership experience in the financial industry.

Prior to coming to WyHy, Yang served in a variety of roles including EVP, CEO and CFO at different credit unions.

Yang replaces outgoing CFO Cyndi Patras, who announced earlier in 2019 her plans to retire at the end of August after 15 years at WyHy. Patras began her career at WyHy as Controller and transitioned into the role of VP/CFO when the position was created.

Yang’s credit union experience in various roles, and his expertise in finance and accounting, will be an asset to the executive team at WyHy. His passion for the industry and delivering optimal returns to members will help WyHy continue to grow and remain one of the top healthiest credit unions in America.

As CFO, Yang says one of his goals is to help WyHy function as a data-driven organization, by creating an effective decision-making methodology based on analytics, while growing the member base, and developing strategies to create and increase value to current and future members. “I thoroughly enjoy serving members every day,” Yang says, “and I’m looking forward to helping WyHy become the best it can possibly be.”

Yang is a Certified Management Accountant and holds a Bachelor of Science degree from University of California, Los Angeles as well as a Master of Business Administration from Regis University.
