A Message from our CEO

  • May 1, 2023

Dear SkyOne Members,

I wanted to take a moment to address the recent news regarding the seizure of First Republic Bank by the FDIC and the subsequent sale of its assets to JP Morgan Chase. While this news may have caused concern among traditional bank customers, it is important to remember that credit unions like SkyOne are fundamentally different.

As a credit union, SkyOne is member-owned, not-for-profit, and is not beholden to shareholders. Unlike traditional banks, which operate to maximize shareholder profits, we exist solely to serve the needs of our members. This fundamental difference means that we prioritize your financial well-being above all else.

We take great pride in being a sound financial institution that is owned and governed by our members. Our recently published 2022 Annual Report demonstrates our strong financial standing and continued growth. As we continue to provide exceptional financial services and personalized attention to our members, we thank you for your continued trust and support.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,

 

Joseph E. Whitaker

President and  CEO

    Dear Mr. Whitaker,
    I want you to know about an outstanding employee in your organization whose name is Ms. Ebony.

    I was very angry that my bill pay payment got misrouted and was going to cause me to be late on paying a bill. Ebony was CALM, NICE AND REASSURING THROUGHOUT THE PHONE CALL. Ebony never raised her voice even though I was hollering——she was always nice. She came up with a good solution to my concerns.

    I am a retired FAA employee and having such a COMPETENT AND NICE PERSON is very calming and a relief.

    I cannot thank you enough for hiring her and her service was OUTSTANDING.
