William Reidel Tribute (2004)
Just earlier this month, Bill Reidel retired after nearly 40 years of service to Consumers Cooperative Credit Union. For the past 25 years, he has faithfully served the credit union’s members as CEO after originally beginning his career there as a Loan Collector in 1964.
Under Bill’s leadership, the credit union has grown from nearly 16,200 members to more than 47,000 and from $14 million in assets to over $365 million. In addition, the credit union has also expanded its operations to include five branch locations, including two in its headquartered town of Waukegan.
Bill is also a friend to his community, having worked tirelessly for community organizations and many civic boards, including the Lake County Chamber of Commerce. For this organization, he served three terms on the board, including as President.
