LAFCU Creates New Director Position, Promotes Larson
In LAFCU’s quest to provide the highest level of service to its members, it has announced the creation of a new director-level position with a specific focus on streamlining processes and developing member-focused solutions.
To fill the newly created role, LAFCU CEO Patrick Spyke promoted Ryan Larson, of Lansing, to Director of Professional Services.
“We created this position to elevate our process improvement efforts designed to increase efficiency and maximize productivity throughout the organization,” said Spyke. “Doing so will allow LAFCU to develop more member-focused organizational solutions that will provide an exceptional member experience in today’s changing environment.”
Larson is a two-time LAFCU employee, having been recruited back to the growing organization for a second stint. He initially joined LAFCU in 2012 as senior member service representative at the DeWitt branch and then at the credit union’s contact center.
Before joining LAFCU’s professional services department as a process research analyst in 2015, he worked for a year in San Diego, California, at the nation’s leading core data processing and technology-solution provider for credit unions. Prior to joining LAFCU, Larson had additional credit union experience.
“We can best serve LAFCU members by maximizing the synergy of our people, processes and systems,” said Larson. “We want to ensure our focus is always on members’ needs, helping members obtain financial security and enabling them to fulfill their life aspirations.”
Larson’s professional and personal outreach efforts include working with the Michigan Credit Union League to advocate for credit unions and their members with policymakers in Washington D.C. He is also a member of the Holt/South Lansing Rotary Club, helping raise funds for area high school senior college scholarships and to purchase water filters for third-world countries.
Larson holds a Master of Business Administration from Walsh College of Accountancy and Business Administration and a bachelor’s in political science–pre-law from Michigan State University.Go to main navigation
