The Cornerstone Community Federal Credit Union board of directors has announced the selection of Eric M. Hepkins as the organization's next CEO. Hepkins will replace Ann M. Hood, who will retire Feb. 28 after 34 years with the credit union.
The announcement is the culmination of a thorough national search that began last summer.
"The board and I are delighted that Eric will be joining us to lead Cornerstone" said David Nemi, chairman of the board. "His background, experience and education will make him an excellent addition to our management team. He will be a great leader for our employees."
Hepkins is a Western New York native with over 17 years of experience in the financial services industry, including senior roles in technology, strategic transformation, lending and retail distribution. He comes to the credit union from HSBC Bank, where he has been senior vice president, U.S. head of retail transformation and streamlining. Previous to that he served as head of retail banking for Evans Bank, as well as in various retail and administrative positions within HSBC.
"I am incredibly honored, and deeply humbled, to join the Cornerstone family," Hepkins said. "Cornerstone really has a rare combination of a passion for family, amazingly talented people, and an undying dedication to member service. The organization has had outstanding leadership over the past 20 years, and is well-positioned to continue building on a model of sustainable, community-focused growth."
Hepkins holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the State University of New York, College at Geneseo and a Masters of Business Administration from the University at Buffalo, School of Management.
In his new role, he will oversee operations of the credit unions five branches throughout Niagara County.
