BREA, CALIF., Feb. 22, 2016 – Evangelical Christian Credit Union (ECCU) continues to expand its leadership ranks with the appointment of Greg Talbott as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

“After an extensive recruitment, we’re fortunate to welcome Greg,” Pomar said. “His proven skills in developing and executing financial strategies, coupled with his commitment to creating a superior experience for members aligns with our strong organizational culture. Greg will add depth of experience to our executive team and ensure our financial strategies align with and support ECCU’s vision to become a diversified credit union serving both consumers and ministry members.”

During his tenure there, Greg helped to streamline accounting and finance functions, developed systems and controls, and improved the timeliness and accuracy of reporting financial information for the former Hughes Aircraft Employees Federal Credit Union, which has more than $3.5 billion in assets on record.
From 1987 to 2008, Greg held positions of increasing responsibility at PFF Bank & Trust in Rancho Cucamonga, California, culminating in his role as Senior Executive Vice President with dual Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer responsibilities. He had responsibility for overseeing the growth of PFF Bank & Trust into a publicly traded community bank.
