Letter From President/CEO

Hello ValleyStar members, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself as your new CEO. I am honored to be a part of the ValleyStar team. It’s important that you know I am committed to you, to support and serve the communities you and I call home, and to work together to lead financially secure lives. My focus is on you, our ValleyStar member and the ValleyStar team who helps you reach your dreams of home ownership, buying that new set of wheels, or maybe saving up for that degree you always hoped to earn. If you can dream it – our team can help you achieve it. Here at ValleyStar, we believe in engaging our communities through financial contributions and volunteerism, and we believe in a supportive work environment that promotes collaboration, and personal and professional growth. At ValleyStar we believe innovation is necessary to thrive and when you succeed, we succeed. To share a little about my background before coming to ValleyStar Credit Union, I served as president and CEO of Solano First Federal Credit Union, which merged into Valley Strong Credit Union. Throughout my career, I have also held such roles as vice president of business development, assistant vice president of member service, and president and owner of a lease savings company. I graduated with a BFA from Plymouth State College and hold an MBA Certificate, Innovation Engineering from the University of Maine. As we look forward, it is my commitment to you that we here at ValleyStar Credit Union never lose sight of ValleyStar’s rich history and will build upon the strong relationships that have been the key to our success. Since 1953, when we first began in Martinsville, we have met you, our members, where you are – whether it’s helping you buy that first home or securing your retirement nest egg. We understand that you put your trust in ValleyStar and we don’t take that lightly. We will continue to go beyond the transaction to help improve the quality of life and financial well-being of you, our ValleyStar member, of our community and our employees.

Thank you,
Mike Warrell
President and CEO
