MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. – Kennedy Space Center FCU announced this morning it hired Joe Mirachi, head of $135 million Tucson Old Pueblo CU, as president and CEO of the $600 million credit union.
Mirachi is succeeding the retiring Maureen Lowe, who worked her way up from a teller hire in 1981 to CEO in 2009.

He started his career at a $6-billion asset bank in New York City where he rose to the position of vice president.
