Chadwick Evans Promoted to Senior Vice President of Lending at Associated Credit Union
Friday, January 11th, 2019
In the credit union industry, you often hear of those who have ‘credit unions in their blood.’ What does this mean to outsiders? You live and breathe credit unions and the strong value system that they stand for. Associated Credit Union is proud to announce the promotion of Chadwick (Chad) Evans, who exemplifies this ideal to its fullest, to Senior Vice President of Lending.
Evans has a long history with credit unions and has never been a member of a traditional bank. His father worked as a partner of ACU, so Evans has been walking through these doors since he was just twelve years old. The two executives he later worked most closely with have literally seen him grow up in the credit union industry.
“Greg Connor and ‘Cept Harden are definitely on the Mount Rushmore of people who have influenced my life,” said Evans. “They knew me when I was young, and supported my personal and professional growth through the years.”
Evans graduated with a Bachelors in Finance from the University of Georgia in 1997. He worked at Atlanta Postal Credit Union as a Mortgage Loan Officer before making the switch to Associated Credit Union in April 2001. In 2004, he graduated from Georgia State University with an MBA in Personal Financial Planning. He received a promotion to Assistant Vice President (AVP) of the Mortgage department in 2012. Then from 2012-2016 he served as AVP of the Contact Center before being promoted to Vice President of Lending in 2016. In November 2018, he was promoted to Senior Vice President of Lending.
“I feel like I was put on this earth to serve,” said Evans. “And I strive to do that in every aspect of my life – most especially when it comes to our membership.”
Evans was a founding member of the ACU Foundation in 2005, and served on the committee for 12 years. Additionally he was a founding member of Ignite, ACU’s employee outreach and team building committee. He completed the Southeastern Credit Union Management School in 2010, and currently serves on the board of the Georgia Lending Council. He has been married to his wife Amy for 10 years, and they have three sons: Noah (13), and twins Donovan and Easton (5).
