National Bank of Poland president praises PSFCU
BROOKLYN, N.Y. (3/11/09)--The president of the National Bank of Poland praised the Polish & Slavic FCU (PSFCU) for its investment strategies, programs and commitment to Poland and Polish-Americans. Bank President Slawomir Skrzypek was briefed on the history and achievements of the largest ethnic credit union in the country at a meeting at the PSFCU headquarters in Brooklyn last week. In turn, he spoke with the PSFCU's board of directors about the state of the Polish economy (PR Newswire March 9). “You can all be proud of your credit union,” said Skrzypek. “It is no secret that PSFCU has become a symbol of [Poland’s] financial strength. So quite naturally, planning my trip to the U.S., I made a point to find out first-hand what stands behind your success. You are doing a fantastic job.” “It was a true honor to have such a distinguished official spend time getting to know us, our members and how we do business,” said Bogdan Chmielewski, PSFCU's CEO. “This is a sign of how financial leaders--here and in Poland--are increasingly recognizing the strides and successes we've made in our credit union and acknowledging the positive impact of the credit union movement as a whole. “A few months ago, we met here with representatives of Polish credit unions--the SKOKs--and they also reported that their good financial standing translated into strengthening their overall position in Poland,” he added. The fact that PSFCU has awarded more than $1.8 million in scholarships to students was of particular interest to Skrzypek. “I think President Skrzypek felt that this community program captured the true essence of a local ethnic credit union: one that placed such a great emphasis on the future of its community and on the betterment of its members and their families,” said Krzysztof Matyszczyk, PSFCU's board chairman.
