Rod Staatz has been President and CEO of SECU Credit Union since 2003, but his financial services roots run deep. With over 30 years of financial experience, Rod has held various executive banking positions before joining the credit union movement in 1996. SECU is a $1.8 billion credit union headquartered in Linthicum, Maryland with over 250,000 members.
Working in both the banking and credit union worlds has given Rod a unique appreciation for what credit unions provide that for-profit financial institutions can’t. He is passionately dedicated to the credit union philosophy. Rod also sits on the Boards of CSCU (Card Services for Credit Unions), CUALN (Credit Union Auto Lending Network), CUBC (Credit Union Business Capital), OTS (Open Technology Solutions), Credit Union Miracle Day, the Maryland/DC Credit Union Association, and is Chairman of the Advocacy Committee for the Association. He was Vice-Chair of the CUNA Growth Task Force in 2007 and was the Chairman of the Large Credit Union Roundtable for 2008 – 2009.
