Scott McFarlandCEO Honor Credit Union
Scott has been the CEO of Honor Credit Union since 2008 and has been working in the credit union industry since 1989 after his Mom got him a job as a floating teller while in college at a local branch in his hometown. Scott’s years of experience at credit unions, ranging from $15 Million to $1.5 Billion provides him with unique perspectives on all areas of the credit union mission. His commitment to the philosophy of credit unions is not just spoken but demonstrated in the work he does each day with his team, members, communities, and the movement.
Since joining the Honor Credit Union team as CEO, the organization has seen strong and steady growth even during challenging economic times. Scott credits the growth in the organization to a focus on the member, investment in the communities Honor serves, a progressive and supportive Board of Directors, and the committed and hardworking people that make up Team Honor!
Scott considers himself blessed by learning from strong mentors and peers in the industry, his family, and most importantly his strong faith in God’s plans. Scott’s Dad taught him early in life that the “Work Hard – Play Hard” philosophy creates a balanced and exciting journey and his Mom taught that God is in control, depend on Him. He lives this philosophy through volunteer work, community activism, political action, coaching sports, and involvement as a Board Member at CU*Answers and CUSG, as well as many other local community boards, and volunteer organizations.
Scott has his BA in Economics and Management from Albion College and an MBA in Management from Saginaw Valley State University. Scott remains thankful for mentors, peers, co-workers, and family that have and continue to teach him new things all the time.
