Be sure to check out The Conservative Commando Radio Show Interview below with AACUC Board Members Lynette Smith, Tim L. Anderson and Helen Godfrey-Smith!
Harold Holmes is the Vice President of New Business with one of AACUC’s longtime Sponsors, PFP. PFP Provides supplemental insurance to credit union members and their families. Since 1973, PFP has been connecting credit unions and their members to build a secure financial Foundation. PFP prides itself on building relationships with their credit union partners and members. Currently, they work with over 125 Credit Unions in 17 States.
Since 2001, Harold has been on the scene with AACUC from its humble beginnings. He is responsible for spreading the news of our organization to other credit union professionals and endorsing our programs throughout the country.
Harold’s role at PFP began in 1985 as a Sales Representative; he was quickly promoted holding the positions of Supervisor, Manager, Regional Manager, Assistant Vice President, and Vice President of New Business. In these roles Harold helped credit unions provide protection for its members and their families through various insurance prod ucts. PFP also helps credit unions grow by increasing their membership and cross selling the credit union products and services, which leads to credit unions having non-interest income that helps to provide better rates for the members and raises for the credit union employees.
In his current role of Vice President, New Business Executive and Ambassador, Harold is responsible for doing what he does so well – maintaining existing relationships and building new relationships with credit unions and partners. Harold is a problem solver and has a reputation of ensuring that all is well with customers.
The AACUC is proud to have Harold Holmes as a member and PFP as a Partner/Sponsor for over a decade and look forward to our continued relationship. As Harold would say, “The Best is Yet to Come!”
