Shrewsbury – David A. L”Ecuyer, the president and CEO of Central One Federal Credit Union, has been honored by Bankers and Tradesman with the 2013 Credit Union Heroes Award for outstanding contributions to the credit union industry.

The award honors individuals who have made a widely recognized and significant contribution in advancing the credit union industry and their local communities. L”Ecuyer was honored for his decades of contributions in the community credit union industry which includes working with more than 100 charitable and service organizations, from the Red Cross of Central Massachusetts, Veteran's Inc., You Inc., Rotary clubs, and Councils on Aging, as well as state, local and national credit union leagues.

“A lot of credit unions have transitioned from closed shop to community, but not all of them have done it successfully. And the way you do that is you have to show people you have a real commitment to these places, that you'se not just there to donate money, but your time,” he said. “You have to be there for the schools, the kids – those are the kinds of things that mean something to people.”
