Montana credit unions honored Russell Country FCU board member Bryan Fox for his unswerving commitment and countless contributions to his credit union, and his community over the past 30 years by giving him the 2009 Mitch Reed Montana Volunteer of the Year Award.
“Bryan’s 30 years of service to Russell Country FCU have made him a seasoned board member, yet he still maintains a desire to keep up on the newest trends developing within the credit union industry,” said Bernie Neibauer, Russell Country FCU President/CEO. “Bryan understands the need for change in an ever-changing business climate; I appreciate his insight and value his opinion on local, national, and international financial topics.”
As a Russell Country FCU Board member, Fox donates his time and expertise. He started his credit union service at the age of 21 by serving on a Supervisory Committee; at age 23 he was a board member. He has assisted in two successful mergers and the implementation of credit and debit cards.
In addition to his tremendous service to his credit union, Fox is the HR Officer for Montana’s Air and Army National Guard and has served his country with a tour to Iraq. Even though he now lives in Helena, he continues his service to his credit union in Great Falls.
