Lynne Kennedy

CEO of Victoria Teachers Federal Credit Union

Lynne Kennedy has served as the CEO of Victoria Teachers Federal Credit Union since 2001. During this time, she has helped the organization grow from a small savings and loans institution to a 1,400 member full service financial organization with $15 million in assets. This growth has allowed the organization to purchase its own building, add drive-thru service and offer members an expanded list of financial services.

A veteran of the industry, Lynne has been involved with credit unions since 1986, when she started as a teller with the Victoria City County Credit Union and quickly moved up to Assistant Manager. She then spent 4 years with Corpus Christi Chrome Credit Union before taking the leadership role at Victoria Teachers Credit Union. With local schools as the focus for their community service initiatives, VTFCU helps sponsor and support financial education and teacher innovation within the classroom.

Lynne is a long time user of CUtopia and member of the User Advisor Board. During the software’s development days, she worked closely with CUtopia employees, teaching them how the various software solutions are utilized in the daily credit union operations. This has provided valuable insights in the design and implementation of various applications. She has also been a beta-tester for CUtopia’s hosted services product offering and points out that making this switch can be a challenge in how it impacts operations and understanding the overall value the hosted services solution can offer. Her goal as a UAB member is to continue to provide real life input that focuses on the functionality that will maximize the credit unions efficiency and benefit her members most.

Lynne has been married for 31 years, has 3 children and 2 grandchildren. When she is not spoiling the grandchildren, her passion is Harley motorcycles. She and her husband have biked across the United States and Lynne has been Treasurer and Member Chair of the Harley Owners Group (HOG).

CUtopia has always strived to make their products user friendly and simple to use. They are flexible in their approach and work with us to get their products right.”
