WOCCUs Pete Crear awarded Polish CU System prize
WARSAW (5/7/08)--World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) President/CEO Pete Crear has been named recipient of the Feniks Prize awarded by the Foundation for Polish Credit Unions, part of the Polish Credit Union System. The prize will be presented in a special ceremony June 19 at the Polish system's National Credit Union Conference. "Under the able leadership of Pete Crear, WOCCU became much stronger in the countries of Eastern Europe, putting emphasis on better utilizing Polish credit union expertise for the benefit of the movements in this region," said Grzegorz Bierecki, president of Poland's National Association of Cooperative Savings and Credit Unions. Bierecki is also WOCCU board treasurer. Crear, a former executive for the Credit Union National Association and its affiliates as well as several state credit union leagues, was awarded the Foreign Prize, one of five Feniks awards given each year. Judges for the award include CEOs, deputy CEOs and board members of the Polish credit unions' national association and foundation. Prize committee members said Crear received the honor for his continuous support and personal commitment to the Polish Credit Union System. "I have been fortunate to witness the growth of the Polish system and have long been impressed with the expertise and commitment of its chief architects," said Crear. "It's one of the world's fastest growing, most accomplished credit union systems, and I am pleased and proud to receive this prestigious honor."
