ROME, N.Y. — Mark Pfisterer, president and CEO of AmeriCU Credit Union, announced he plans to retire in 2020.

His retirement date will be finalized when a successor is announced, the credit union said in a Wednesday news release.

“Leading this organization has been the honor of a lifetime” Pfisterer said. “In my 40 plus years of working here, I have witnessed a tremendous amount of growth and change in the industry, as well as the credit union itself.”

Pfisterer joined what was then UpState Credit Union in 1979, as the comptroller/assistant manager for administration. In 1981, he was promoted to executive VP, then to president and CEO in 1987.

The nonprofit AmeriCU serves nine counties in Central and Northern New York. The credit union currently has more than 136,000 members through its 19 branches and a member service center.
