Pete Hernandez Joins PCU Team!

In a recent effort to strengthen our team, Pete Hernandez was recently acquired by Peoples Credit Union in the role of Vice President/Branch Manager of the Lamar facility. Pete has extensive experience in the world of financial banking, having served over 16 years in Pueblo, Colorado. Following his graduation from the University of Southern Colorado with a degree in Finance/Economics, he followed that with a distinguished career with Pueblo Bank & Trust, Wells Fargo Bank and, most recently as the Retail Bank Manager/Security Officer for Sunflower Bank in the Pueblo area.

Pete, a native of Granada, Colorado, along with his family made the decision to relocate back to southeastern Colorado to “his roots”. High sought by numerous financial institutions, Pete made the decision to join the team at Peoples Credit Union, and we could not be more pleased with that decision. Pete’s extensive resume of experience will afford PCU the ability to excel in our newly acquired market. Not only does Pete bring experience, but he also brings an enthusiasm and freshness to the highly competitive banking industry of southern Colorado. His personality, experience and desire to succeed make him an extremely value asset to the PCU team.
