Following a nationwide search, the board of directors of Northeast Credit Union in Portsmouth selected Christopher Parker as the organization’s next president and CEO. Parker will succeed long‐time CEO Timothy J. Collia, who is retiring after 19 years as the CEO for Northeast.
“We are excited to bring Chris on as our next CEO. He has wonderful experience in the credit union world, and we are sure that under his direction, Northeast will continue to flourish, just as it has under our outgoing CEO, Tim,” says Raymond Bald, chair of the board.
For the past 14 years, Parker has worked with Partners Federal Credit Union in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, where he most recently served as interim Co‐CEO. Since joining Partners FCU in 2007, Parker moved through the ranks as COO, before transitioning to chief member service officer.
In 2017, he became the executive vice president, chief operating officer. In that role, Parker oversaw the Credit Union’s lending, operations, payments, digital services and business transformation areas and was responsible for driving the credit union’s digital and channel delivery strategies.
“I am excited for the opportunity to work with Northeast Credit Union’s members, staff and board building on the credit union’s strong and successful history,” says Parker.
