Sharonview Federal Credit Union, one of the nation’s top 200 credit unions, is pleased to announce its new Chief Financial Officer –
Jim Edwards, who brings 30 years of leadership experience in the financial services industry.
Prior to coming to Sharonview, Edwards served as CFO for Chartway Federal Credit Union in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He also previously spent 13 years in strategic leadership roles – CFO and Chief Risk Officer – within BB&T’s mortgage unit.
Edwards replaces outgoing CFO Steve Smith, who announced earlier in 2019 his plans to retire at year-end and after more than 20 years with Sharonview. Also earlier this year, Smith was named CUNA Finance Council’s 2019 professional of the year.
“We are very happy to have Jim join our team and share with us his tremendous financial experience and leadership,” said Sharonview President and CEO Bill Partin.
As CFO, Edwards will use a collaborative approach to direct Sharonview’s overall financial plans, strategies and practices. He will work closely with Smith over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition.
Edwards is a Certified Public Accountant and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina.
