DULUTH, Ga. (2/19/10)--Georgia Central CU’s Board of Directors appointed John Rhea, CEO of Robins FCU in Warner Robins, Ga., to serve as a director.
Rhea will complete the unexpired term of Charm McCall, formerly of CSRA CU, which merged with Associated CU late last year. Georgia Central CU is a corporate credit union based in Duluth, Ga. “He has more than 30 years of experience in the financial industry, with 14 of those years spent enriching Georgia credit unions,” said the corporate Chairman Lin Hodges, CEO of Associated CU, Norcross, Ga. Rhea began his credit union career at Robins FCU in 1996 as vice president of operations. After a brief hiatus during which he served at another Georgia credit union, Rhea returned to Robins FCU in 2006 to become the executive vice president/chief operating officer. He stepped into the CEO role just a few years later. Rhea currently serves as a board member of Cooperative Services Inc. and sits on the Georgia Credit Union Affiliates’ Finance Task Force.
