Wanigas Announces New Chief Financial Officer

Wanigas Credit Union, headquartered in Saginaw, announced the selection of Nadia Abed-Rabo as their new chief financial officer (CFO), following an extensive national search. Abed-Rabo will transition into the position with the current CFO, Jay Peitsch, Sr., who has had a distinguished 19-year career with plans to retire in the first quarter of 2021.

“Nadia has an impressive background in financial operations at credit unions and we know she is the right individual to drive our financial health and success serving our members,” said President/CEO Bernie Williams.

Abed-Rabo comes to Wanigas from Coastal Federal Credit Union, headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she was manager of financial reporting for four years. Prior to that Abed-Rabo was engagement director at CliftonLarsonAllen LLP for more than seven years, where she performed financial audits for financial institutions, government entities and not-for-profits and ensured regulatory compliance. Abed-Rabo holds a bachelor’s of science from Central Michigan University and is a graduate of the Southeast Regional CUNA Management School.

“My roots are in Michigan, so I am familiar with Wanigas’ reputation and I greatly admire how Wanigas has served the greater Saginaw area for many years. I am looking forward to joining the credit union and am excited to get back to Michigan,” said Abed-Rabo.
