2021 40 Under Forty: Charla Stetson

Charla Stetson began her career at Windsor Locks FCU as a teller and was promoted to member services manager after one year. She served the credit union as VP of operations and member services prior to her promotion to CEO in 2018.

Together with the COO and Board of Directors, she oversees all credit union operations, provides strategic planning, ensures regulatory compliance and performs ongoing training and personnel management.

Four reasons why you deserve to be a 40 Under Forty:

Helped create a small business lending partnership between Windsor Locks FCU and the town of Windsor Locks.

Is the youngest CEO in Windsor Locks FCU’s history.

Is a graduate of the Credit Union League of Connecticut’s first Executive Education Cohort (class of 2017).

Navigated PPP lending and forgiveness compliance through Windsor Locks FCU’s first experience with SBA 7a lending.

What’s been your biggest professional/work accomplishment so far in your career?

My greatest accomplishment so far in my career has been successfully leading the company through the COVID-19 pandemic. Under my leadership, the credit union retained all existing employees, grew its membership by 3% and provided PPP loans without a third-party processor to assist its small business members.
