IBEW 26 FCU Selects Joshua Urbick as Next CEO

IBEW 26 Federal Credit Union has selected Joshua Urbick, CCUFC, to serve as its next chief executive officer.

I eagerly anticipate working with the board and engaging in a fruitful collaboration with our fantastic team. Our goal is to persistently steer the credit union on an upward trajectory, as we delicately maneuver through the economic complexities of our time.”

Urbick brings nearly a decade of financial services experience to his new position, serving in various roles at Global Credit Union after getting his professional start at Banner Bank. He has also served as Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Hayden Chamber of Commerce and President of the North Idaho Chapter of NWCUA.
