Financial Center First CU’s President and CEO Receives
Jefferson Award for Multiplying Good
Indianapolis, Ind. – Financial Center First Credit Union's President and CEO, J. Kevin Ryan, received the Jefferson Award for Multiplying Good in July of 2020. Presented by RTV6 in Indiana, the Jefferson Award for Multiplying Good is awarded to local unsung heroes who make the world a better place through volunteering and community service.
J. Kevin Ryan received the award for his dedication to helping Hoosiers all across the state, whether it be through feeding the hungry, supporting and honoring military veterans, or championing financial education at the credit union he leads.
By driving the credit union to support these aspects of community outreach, his leadership has led to helping raise over $300,000 to build the Indiana Military Veteran Hall of Fame, hundreds of thousands of dollars to feed the hungry through Pack the Pantries and Financial Center’s charity golf outing, and providing free financial education to thousands of Hoosiers on an annual basis.
"As a credit union, Financial Center is dedicated to giving back to the communities we serve, so the ability to be involved is a blessing for us," Ryan said. "I was honored to receive this award, and recognize that this type of recognition is the result of the efforts of many people including our employees and Board of Directors.”
