Board Member Spotlight
At Mattel FCU, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with an amazing group of volunteers as our Board of Directors. Randy Hollis is a prime example of the great leadership we have. He has served on Mattel FCU board for about 34 years, he first served on the Supervisory Committee and eventually was asked to join the Board of Directors. Randy has contributed his time to help build our Credit Union family and we are grateful to have him with us. Here are some fun facts about him:
What do you love most about Mattel FCU?
Although we remain a smaller Credit Union, we offer our Members a wide array of services and competitive rates. We are able to maintain a family atmosphere with a Staff that can recognize Members when they walk through the door and greet them by name in most cases. Our Volunteers on the Board and Supervisory Committee are member-focused and strive to keep to the original principles of the Credit Union philosophies.
Do you have a mentor? Who is it and why?
My mentor is a longtime friend. He also is a now-retired large Credit Union President who has helped guide me throughout my volunteer career with MFCU as well as being a role model in life, career at Mattel Inc., and to focus on what is important in life. We sometimes spend hours talking through how credit unions have changed and how Boards have had to adapt to the way CU’s regulations have evolved over the years.
