A Vienna native has been named the chief executive officer of the Fairmont Federal Credit Union, the board of directors announced.

Cindy (Salyers) Dickey succeeded Butch Osborne, who retired on March 1.

“I’m honored to be selected as Fairmont Federal Credit Union’s next Chief Executive Officer,” Dickey, of Fairmont, said. “Fairmont FCU has a proud history and is deeply committed to serving its members. I look forward to leading an organization that is committed to our members, employees and the communities we serve. “

Dickey is a 1989 graduate of Parkersburg High School and a 1993 graduate of Fairmont State University. She became CEO on Jan. 1 while Osborne prepared for his upcoming retirement.

Fairmont FCU is the West Virginia’s third largest credit union with $345 million in assets.

“We express our sincerest best wishes to Butch on his retirement and offer our congratulations and support to Cindy and her new management team as they move forward,” Ken Watts, president of the West Virginia Credit Union League, said.

Dickey has been with the credit union for 25 years. She has served in several areas in the organization, most recently as the senior vice president of quality assurance and risk management.

She has re-aligned the executive management team and has added other management positions as well.

Joining Dickey on the executive leadership team will be: Nancy Lopez, executive vice president and CFO; Stacia Martin, executive vice president, administration; and Beth Bilotta, executive vice president, operations. Each of these individuals have 30 or more years of service to the members of Fairmont Federal Credit Union and will provide support to Dickey in her new role.

The board of directors is pleased when it can promote from within the organization, Osborne said.

“It is always good to have the home-grown talent to rely on for the continuity of the operation, and it allows long time dedicated staff members the opportunity to grow professionally as well,” Osborne said.

Additional promotions include: Cindy Bajus, vice president, lending; Stacey Harvey, vice president, market development; Julie Swyck, vice president, information technology; Sherri Moore, assistant vice president, risk management.

Completing the management team are: Michele Taylor, vice president, loss mitigation/card services; Michelle Reeves, assistant vice president, loan processing; and James Coulter, assistant vice president, member businesses.
