Spotlight: Harriet May, Co-op Hall of Fame Inductee

Harriet May is the former President & CEO of the Government Employees Credit Union (GECU)
 

As CEO of the Government Employees Credit Union, Harriet May understood the power of credit unions to improve the lives of low income and minority members of her El Paso, Texas community.

Harriet May began her career as a teller and rose to become the CEO of GECU – the largest locally owned financial institution in El Paso, Texas. She has been a cooperative leader at the state, national, and international levels. May led efforts to make home ownership more widely available by helping to establish an Affordable Housing Credit Union Service Organization. The CUSO’s results have been dramatic, impacting the lives of thousands in her community. She was an innovator in the area of financial literacy, even participating in a panel discussion with the President of the United States, and she worked across the border with Mexican officials in order to put in place a system of affordable remittance services. The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has looked to May to valiantly defend the tax status of the U.S. credit union movement.
