North Highlands-based SAFE Credit Union, which has more than 160,000 members and 21 branches throughout the Sacramento region, has expanded its executive structure amid anticipation of continued growth.
Dave Roughton, executive vice president, becomes president and chief operating officer under the new arrangement, effective Friday.
Roughton will assume more of the day-to-day responsibilities in SAFE's retail services, accounting/finance and information technology divisions.
The credit union said the changes will give CEO Henry Wirz more time to concentrate on SAFE's development strategies, long-term business plan and work more closely with the SAFE board of directors.
Roughton has nearly 20 years of experience with SAFE and also previously worked as SAFE's external certified public accountant. SAFE has expanded into business banking and bills itself as a leading local Small Business Administration lender.
