LATYON, Utah.–CUProdigy, a technology-focused CUSO, has selected a new CEO, naming Bret Weekes to lead the organization.
Prior to joining CUProdigy, Weekes was president/CEO of eDOC Innovations, a Middlebury, Vt.-based CUSO that provides digital transaction management and related technology, where he has spent the last 20 years.
Weekes began his career in leadership at a core data processor, spending nearly a decade there before joining eDOC.
“Bret is an excellent choice to lead our CUSO,” said CUProdigy Chairman Jack Creager, who is executive VP/CFO of the $222-million American United FCU of West Jordan, Utah. “He is experienced in CUSO innovation and is passionate about creating collaborative environments that deliver the most value to CUProdigy client credit unions and our CUSO owners. He has experience in leadership in core processing and has extensive credit union operations experience, and we are pleased to welcome that experience to CUProdigy.”
Weekes will return to his native state of Utah after leaving 13 years ago to establish eDOC’s Vermont office, the company said.
“I admire the trust CUProdigy has earned with its credit union owners and peers through its vision for delivering value through shared execution, collaborative technology development and transparency,” Weekes said. “I look forward to working with CUProdigy’s excellent team to move forward and build upon these foundations to create value for credit unions and further garner market trust.”
CUProdigy noted Weekes is joining the company as it has doubled the number of credit unions and members it serves in less than three years. The CUSO reported it has added six new core processing clients so far in 2018 and last year reported a 60% year-over-year increase in its cloud-based Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) business.
Statement from eDOC
In a statement, Mark Fierro, COO/EVP with eDOC, said, “In the 20 years that Bret has served at eDOC, he has laid out a vision for the company that will guide eDOC for many years to come. He has built a strong foundation for future growth, including strengthening our team, evolving our products, and improving our operations. It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that we say goodbye to him as our inspiring leader. He is leaving the company very sound and positioned for continued success. Everyone at eDOC wishes him the best of luck in his new endeavor as the President/CEO of CUProdigy.”
