Our people are always looking out for you

So who's running the show? You are. Purdue Federal members elect a Board of Directors, which then makes decisions driven by what's best for the individuals, families and businesses that we serve.

Purdue Federal Credit Union serves more than 100,000 members worldwide and controls assets of over $1.8 billion. As a member-owned cooperative, we're governed by a nine-member volunteer board of directors elected by the membership. An experienced senior management team oversees day-to-day operations.

Together, the board and management team develop and implement strategic initiatives that help us carry out our mission of being our members’ trusted financial partner for life. They also help create a culture committed to financial innovations, member service, employee professionalism, and a little fun.
