Illinois Credit Union Hall of Fame
John C. Fiore
For over thirty years, John Fiore has devoted his life to the credit union movement. As CEO of Motorola Employees Credit Union, John oversees a full-service credit union with more than $300 million in assets and 50,000 members. In addition to his duties at Motorola, John has contributed countless hours to the Illinois Credit Union League, the Northern Cook County Chapter, the ICU Foundation, the Illinois Credit Union Executives Society, the national Credit Union Foundation and the CUNA board where he served as a director during its Renewal project.
John’s list of accomplishments and achievements is impressive. He currently is serving as the league director from the Northern Cook County Chapter, a position he has held since 1989, serving as chairman from 1994 to 1996. John has been a member of the ICU Foundation board since 1987, serving as chairman from 1989 to 1991. He is also a member of the board of the national Credit Union Foundation, is president of Illinois CUES and serves as chairman of Card Services for Credit Unions, a credit-card trade association.
In addition to his many volunteer credit union activities, John was named the Credit Union Executive of the Year by the Illinois Credit Union Executives Society in 1995, received the Motorola CEO Certificate for Volunteerism in 1992 and 1993 and was awarded the Illinois Credit Union System’s Spirit of Service -- Employee of the Year Award in 1999.
In his spare time, John has devoted many hours to raising funds for programs such as "Teddy Bears for Kids" and the Children’s Miracle Network "Credit Unions for Kids" programs. He is in great demand as an auctioneer for state, national and chapter events organized to raise money for these causes.
John’s leadership and involvement at all levels of the credit union movement are evident in his many professional and personal achievements. But it is his desire to help others, to lend a hand when necessary, to share his expertise and commitment to the credit union movement that make John such a strong candidate for the Hall of Fame.
