Tremont Credit Union is proud to announce its CFO, James K. Roy (Jim), has been honored as a 2017 Credit Union Hero. Mr. Roy is the Chief Financial Officer at Tremont Credit Union by title, but in practice his role is much broader and more impactful. He is not only committed to his role at Tremont Credit Union but he is committed to our membership, the employment groups and communities TCU serves as well as the credit union movement itself.
For the past 3 years, Mr. Roy has served at the Chief Financial Officer of Tremont Credit Union. In this role, he has proven himself a leader that excels as a result of hard work, commitment, technical understanding of the accounting function and a broad understanding of our organizational obligations and goals.
Personally, he is a humble and straight forward colleague that tempers his professional intensity with a warm sense of humor. He enjoys educating the staff on all credit union financial matters, and often goes above and beyond to break down complex financial concepts and clarify them for board members and member service representatives alike.
TCU is most impressed with his desire to invest in the continuous training of the staff, which he knows is the key to better service excellence and value to our membership. Mr. Roy is also consistently involved in our philanthropic initiatives, as he often leads the Tremont Team as they participate in the various efforts such as the Mix 104.1 Cares for Kids Radiothon benefiting the Boston Children’s Hospital one of our Select Employer Groups. He also identifies various charitable causes and participates in collecting donations for several deserving organizations.
His academic and professional background paired to his team building skills made him a great addition to the senior management team of Tremont Credit Union. He has contributed to many projects, launched a complete overhaul of the Finance Department, and refined the organization’s compliance program. The board and management team relies on Mr. Roy’s expertise, patience, and keen attention to detail to ensure Tremont Credit Union responsibly manages the organization. Mr. Roy is a team player that impacts that game. He is a pleasure to work with and Tremont Credit Union believes he is very deserving to be honored as a Credit Union Hero.
