Eugene Roman, Past Chair
After twenty years of distinguished service, fifteen of them as Chair, Eugene Roman has retired from the Board of the Ukrainian Credit Union Limited as of September of 2015. As part of an orderly succession plan, he stepped down as Chair of the Board in 2013 but continued to serve as Director.
During his tenure, Eugene was key in helping UCU Limited significantly grow its asset base and adopt new technologies. He helped steer the Credit Union through five mergers and acquisitions, including Ukrainian (Sudbury) Credit Union, St. Demetrius Parish Credit Union, Ukrainian (St. Catharines) Credit Union, So-Use Credit Union and United Ukrainian (Hamilton) Credit Union, making it one of the largest ethnic credit unions in Ontario. Under his leadership, UCU was one of the first credit unions in Ontario to implement a Call Centre, which continues today as a key element of the UCU’s service delivery model.
His presence will be greatly missed. In departing, Eugene will continue to support and lend his expertise to the Board and UCU Limited upon request.
The Board of Directors congratulates Eugene for his two decades of contribution and wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavours.
