The $ 2.1 billion in assets credit union announced Thursday that Butz, senior vice president of Community First Credit Union in Appleton, Wisconsin, will take the helm in early November.

“We are delighted to welcome Laurie to the Capital Credit Union family,” Chairman of the Board of Directors Steve Frassetto said in a press release. “She will be a fantastic asset to the credit union, and her experience and knowledge will be invaluable to the future growth of our organization.”
As first vice-president of the $ 4.6 billion in assets Community First, Butz oversaw business development, investment and insurance services, as well as the credit union sponsorship of the Community First Fox Cities Marathon.
“I look forward to meeting the Capital Credit Union team, members and the community at large over the coming months as we move forward in fulfilling the organization’s mission,” said Butz in the press release. “Serving our members, being community stewards and being passionate about the credit union industry aligns with my concern for caring for employees and our friends, families and neighbors in Northeastern Wisconsin.”
