HFCU Announces Organizational Promotions

Heritage Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce several organizational promotions within the credit union. These promotions have increased the responsibilities and roles of several members of the Executive Team.

With the executive responsibilities increasing to support the growth and needs of HFCU staff, former Vice President of Human Resources and Employee Development Barbara Winstead has been promoted to Chief Human Resource Officer. Ms. Winstead has over 28 years of credit union leadership and banking industry experience. She has previous experience in accounting and holds a bachelor’s degree from Kentucky Wesleyan College. Ms. Winstead also holds both a Senior Professional in Human Resources and the SHRM-SCP designations and is a graduate of the ProCon Leadership Institute.

A great effort has been placed in keeping HFCU’s electronic delivery channels updated and relevant for HFCU members that prefer to do their banking through mobile devices. This has also brought about a host of increased responsibilities. Former Vice President of Electronic Delivery & Deposit Support Operations Jason Dietz has been promoted to Chief Digital Services and Deposit Operations Officer. Mr. Dietz has over 15 years of leadership experience in the Credit Union Industry and has held a variety of executive level positions over his tenure at credit unions in Indiana and Pennsylvania. He has executive level experience with network infrastructure, marketing, operations, call center management, electronic services, strategic planning, product development, staffing, employee development, risk management (including vendor management), mergers and acquisitions, asset liability management, and indirect lending.

Heritage Federal Credit Union’s Ruth Jenkins, CCE, CUERME, President & CEO states, “These promotions have been in support of our long-range strategy in response to and preparing for our future growth and expansion. These announcements today support the organizational structure for HFCU’s future.”
