LIVERMORE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 1, 2016) - UNCLE Credit Union, serving Alameda, Contra Costa, San Joaquin, and Stanislaus Counties, re-elected Board Chairman Chung Bothwell and Vice Chairman Randy Werner to oversee the financial cooperative for the 2016-2017 term in its mission of promoting the financial success of its members. Bothwell begins her eighth term in this principal role and was elected by unanimous consent, as was Vice Chairman Randy Werner. As veteran officers that have both served in various capacities on the board for more than two decades, Bothwell and Werner are an integral part of a stable leadership team that has guided the credit union on its path of continued growth while ensuring its financial security.

"Both Randy and I are fortunate to serve with a group of individuals who share a deep understanding of the needs of our members, and of the importance of putting the financial well-being of members first in all major decisions," said Bothwell, who holds an advanced law degree and Master of Business Administration and has more than 33 years of experience in strategic planning, business operations and financial management. "Moreover, our team has a clear and cohesive vision for how this translates into effective organizational policy that enables us to prosper as a financial cooperative -- as we continue to benefit the larger community in an impactful and sustainable way."

In addition to Bothwell and Werner's re-election as key officers of the board, UNCLE elected its former Board Secretary Lee Neely as Treasurer for the 2016-2017 term. Mila Shapovalov, who has served as a director on the board since 2014 and a member of UNCLE's Supervisory Committee since 2013, succeeds Neely as Secretary. Board Directors Bob Corey and John D. Freeman, Jr. also retained their seats for a third consecutive term as Hugh Bussell was named the board's newest member.
