GRAY, Tenn.–Ron Scott, president and CEO of Appalachian Community FCU here, has announced plans to leave the credit union after more than eight years leading the organization.
Scott is stepping away in order to move west and be closer to his and his wife’s aging mothers, according to the Johnson City Press.
“I have had a ball,” Scott was quoted as saying. “We’ve spent eight-and-a-half years investing in this community, and I appreciate the support I’ve received helping me be successful here.”
According to the Johnson City Press, Scott, originally from Southern California, said the resignation was a tough decision for him and his wife, a Las Vegas native, to make, but ultimately it was the best choice for their family.
Scott was quoted as saying he believed the organization will be in good hands after his departure and forecasted even more expansion of the regionalism approach in Northeast Tennessee.
“We appreciate Ron’s years of guiding the credit union and advocating in the communities we serve,” ACFCU Board Chairman Royden Russell said in a statement. “We wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
The $234-million Appalachian Community FCU said it has launched a search for a successor.
