Our leadership

Who's running your credit union?

As a member of a not-for-profit financial cooperative with more than $2 billion in assets, you should know who's running the place. This page can help.


Let's start with Ezra Eckhardt, our president and chief executive officer. He is a fifth-generation Spokane resident with a record of community service. A distinguished graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and Army veteran, Ezra is the fifth person to take the helm of STCU since the credit union was founded in 1934.

Elected directors

Ezra, who serves at the leisure of the board, and the STCU management team are guided by our elected Board of Directors. These directors represent you and other members by setting policy and strategic direction for the credit union.

Each February you're asked to vote for board members in an online election. In addition, you elect STCU members to serve on the Audit Committee, which oversees the financial practices and reporting to members.

You've chosen a great group of leaders. Click on any name shown to the right to learn more about the leaders serving you.


Our employees are empowered to help you at our branch locations, on the telephone, or LiveChat. Thanks for being a part of the credit union difference!
