Meet our CEO, James Higgins

Hello members! My name is James Higgins and I’m excited to join the Skyline Financial Federal Credit Union as Chief Executive Officer. I started on May 3rd, 2021 and was met with a warm welcome from the credit union team members that I’m sure you know and love already. I’ve been in the financial industry over the last six years and specifically in the credit union world since 2018 with most recently working for Waterbury-based FD Community Federal Credit Union as the Chief Operating Officer. At home I’m a proud parent of seven children. I’ve been a licensed foster and adoptive parent for many years and opened my home to children in need. I’m also an advocate of community involvement and serve on multiple non-profit boards including Habitat for Humanity of Greater Waterbury, Young Professionals of Waterbury Region, Exchange Club of Waterbury, and serve as a member of the Board of Finance in my hometown, Naugatuck.

My focus at Skyline Financial is to enhance our member experience by adding new technology to our credit union and expand our membership growth. With that, I also kindly ask that you all invite your friends and family to join Skyline Financial. We have a variety of ways to help our members with the accounts and loans you need. Finally, I will be hosting a meet and greet on Wednesday August 4th, 2021 from 8am to 3pm right in the Skyline Financial lobby! Speaking of the lobby is open again, so please feel free to visit us any time.

I am excited about the future of Skyline Financial Federal Credit Union.

Yours in Exchange,
James A. Higgins, MBA
CEO – Skyline Financial FCU
