Celebrating 30 Years of Service - Paul Hughes

September 30th, 2021 by Catherine James


Please join us in congratulating President Paul Hughes on his 30th Anniversary with Greenville Federal Credit Union. Paul has served as President and CEO of the credit union since 1991. When asked what this credit union has meant to him, Paul replied, 

“When my family and I arrived in Greenville in 1991, we thought that we would be here for 3-4 years…but we’re still here! I have watched Greenville Federal Credit Union grow over the years because of the trust that our member owners place in us. This community is in my blood and I am overwhelmed by the continued support. We have been here for you for over 54 years and we look forward to many more.” 


Paul, you have set an exemplary standard for all of us with your work ethic and dedication to our mission and values. Thank you for everything you have done for the members of this credit union and the Greenville community all of these years.
