Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union President and CEO Jerry Miller recently received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation at its Connect Awards Gala in Charlotte.
The award recognizes an individual who has dedicated his or her life to promoting the credit union philosophy, created innovative concepts, and exhibited leadership that has made a significant and lasting impact on the credit union movement on a local, national and/or international stage.
Miller was nominated by an upstate South Carolina credit union.
“It was an honor just to be nominated,” he said. “I am humbled by the peer recognition and have been fortunate to serve the credit union industry while at Carolina Trust.”
Miller, who plans to retire this year, has been with Carolina Trust for almost 20 years, serving 13 years as president and CEO.
Throughout his tenure at Carolina Trust, Miller has overseen the implementation of services that include nationwide shared branching and co-op ATM participation, bump-a-rate certificates, paperless deposit ATMs, mobile deposit, home and business loans, and “green” auto loan discounts.
