We've put together a billion dollar team.

VCCU's leaders are dedicated, skilled - and always looking out for your interests.

Ventura County Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial institution, which means our leadership team isn't focused on turning a big profit.

Instead, they are free to make decisions that improve the lives of our members and strengthen our communities. And they strive to do that every day.

Board of Directors

Our volunteer directors were elected by Ventura County Credit Union’s members in order to lead our credit union to even further success. Each member’s vote counts equally and only members can serve as directors.

  • Roxy Ostrem, Chair
  • Sonia Amezcua
  • Phil Bohan, Emeritus Board Member
  • Margo Byrne
  • Cory Madden
