A former credit union service organization CEO has taken the helm at Ridgecrest, Calif.-based AltaOne Federal Credit Union.

Pam Easley joins $643 million AltaOne FCU as president and CEO after an extensive career at Extensia Financial LLC, one of the nation’s largest commercial and business lending CUSOs.

“Pam comes to AltaOne not only with over 20 years’ experience, but she is a Ridgecrest native who has an unique understanding of our field of membership,” David Ostash, chairman of the board of directors at AltaOne FCU, said in a press release.

At Extensia Financial, Easley led rebranding and market efforts while expanding the CUSO’s service offerings to enable close partnerships with credit unions to implement key commercial and business lending strategies nationwide. She also implemented portfolio and predictive analytical capabilities that increased credit quality while reducing credit risks in lending and operational portfolios.

Before Extensia Financial, Easley served as president and CEO of La Habra, Calif.-based American First Credit Union focusing on improving profitability and operational excellence, building key community relationships, market share growth and member service.

Easley also served as cluster leader and lead practice director for Deloitte’s Global Financial Services practice. Later, she worked for McGladrey’s, Banking and National Credit Union practices.

She was also executive vice president and chief risk officer at Countywide Financial Corporation; senior vice president for the Strategic Assets Group for IndyMac Bancorp; and vice president for Commercial and Residential Banking for Fremont General Corporation - as well as working over 13 years in the legal profession specializing in the litigation of corporate and infringement matters.

“This is a true honor to serve as President and CEO of AltaOne,” Easley said in the release. “I am very excited to be part of the AltaOne family as it is a privilege to work for an institution as well regarded and esteemed.”
