Dexter Ducreay back as NCCU president

Ducreay wants a more aggressive marketing approach for credit unions
Ducreay back in the saddle at the NCCU

The man who was at the heart of the amalgamation of the National Cooperative Credit Union (NCCU) in 2010, Dexter Ducreay, is now back as president of that institution.

Ducreay headed the amalgamation process and was elected as the first president of the NCCU. He was replaced over the last two years by Michael Augustine.

After the 5th AGM of the NCCU held last week, members of the new board overwhelmingly elected Ducreay to head the NCCU board.

His deputy is Algernon Degallerie with Candia Joseph as treasurer and Charmaine Brumant as secretary.

Ducreay is now entrusted with the task of taking the amalgamation process one step further after the NCCU’s recent AGM voted in favour of a resolution to accept the Castle Bruce and South East credit unions as part of the NCCU.

“I feel humbled to be given the opportunity to lead the NCCU…I am a Credit unionist at heart and I am looking forward to as usual, working with all for the continued development of the NCCU,” he said.

According to him it is “ironic” that he led the process of amalgamating the “Big Five” and will now be leading the way into broaden the amalgamation to the “Big Seven” with the acceptance of the Castle Bruce and South East credit unions.

    it seems now that some people is trying to make amalgamation a dirty word,but in this day and age integration is key for survival. there is no doubt that mr. ducreay is a mover and shaker and will take nccu to greater heights. we need the movement to remain as cooperative but as a financial institution, should be able to purchase and sell foreign currencies to issue drafts and to make direct wire transfers directly to its over seas members, instead of it being done through the bank. it is unfair that the banks are allowed to compete with the nccu but the nccu isn’t allowed to compete with them.

    In the Credit Union, where we are all members, the general idea is that the strong should help the weak. The thinking of the pioneers is a truly National Cooperative Credit Union. Not for profit but for service should still be the watch word.
