We sat down with Kim and discussed his role on the UCCU Board of Directors.

What brought you to UCCU?

Actually, I’ve been a member of the credit union since…I can’t even tell you how many years. My father worked at BYU and helped me become a member back in the 1960s. Which means that UCCU and I are almost the same age!

How did you get involved with UCCU’s Board of Directors?

I worked at Novell with Ron Eliason, who was Novell’s CFO before becoming UCCU’s fifth president. After he accepted that position, he asked me to serve on UCCU’s Supervisory Committee. Eventually, I joined the Board of Directors, where I’m currently serving my third term as Chair.

Can you tell us a little about your experiences volunteering for UCCU?

I’ve always appreciated UCCU’s conservative approach to finances. We really do safeguard each and every dollar. As a member, I’ve always felt completely safe having my money here, because it’s well run, it’s well watched after, and we keep up with every technological advancement. I also really enjoy the relationship I share with the other board members. This is an amazing group of experts, from many different industries, and we make decisions together.
