After attack CU CEO focuses on employee safety
DURHAM, N.C. (4/21/09)--Martin Eakes, co-founder and CEO of Self-Help CU, Durham, N.C., is focusing on employee safety after he was robbed and severely beaten by four men in a parking garage as he left his Durham, N.C., office Nov. 24. Eakes has credit union employees monitoring downtown Durham parking efforts, and hired an off-duty police officer to make sure Self-Help employees reach their parked vehicles safely (The News & Observer April 18). When Eakes was attacked, he suffered multiple bruises to the head and face, a gash to his forehead that required 15 stitches and a torn bicep (The Herald-Sun Nov. 30). The incident occurred at night as he was about to enter the parking garage used by employees of Self-Help. The men delivered between 20 and 30 blows, targeting Eakes’ head and face. They took his wallet and cell phone. Eakes told the newspaper he did not know the men or whether they were waiting for him in particular. The city-owned parking garage, located in Durham’s center city, has generated several complaints about safety (News Now Dec. 2).
