Fox Communities Credit Union is beginning the search for a new leader after President and CEO Greg Hilbert announced he is retiring in 2020.

Headquartered in Appleton, the credit union hired D. Hilton Associates to conduct a nationwide search to find its next president and CEO.

“We thank Greg for his outstanding contributions, endless dedication and loyal service to Fox Communities Credit Union over the past 38 years,” Bill Panella, board chair, said in a release. “The credit union has hit many remarkable milestones under Greg’s leadership, and we couldn’t be better positioned for continued growth and success.”

Hilbert joined Fox Communities Credit Union in 1980 when it was known as Combined Locks Credit Union and had four employees and $3 million in assets. Now after serving as CEO for more than 38 years, Hilbert guided the financial institution to one that serves more than 100,000 members, holds more than $1.6 billion in assets and employs 400.

Under Hilbert’s leadership, Fox Communities Credit Union was the No. 1-rated credit union in the nation for 2017, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence’s annual ranking.

“I would like to thank our members and staff for making the past 38 years so deeply rewarding,” Hilbert said. “It takes a great team to achieve what we did, and I am truly grateful for all of your hard work.”
