Ron Belle, AmeriCU Credit Union President and CEO, was recently appointed to the executive committee of Mohawk Valley EDGE (Economic Development Growth Enterprises Corporation), a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to strengthening and growing the economy of the Mohawk Valley.
“AmeriCU Credit Union is always looking for new ways to give back to the communities we serve,” said Belle. “That vision pairs nicely with EDGE’s dedication to the Mohawk Valley and the cities our credit union has called home for more than 70 years.”
Belle currently serves on Mohawk Valley EDGE’s Board of Directors after having been elected for a three-year term in early 2021. Belle became the President and CEO of AmeriCU Credit Union in May 2020 after being selected by the credit union’s Board of Directors; he has been a member of AmeriCU’s Chief Leadership Team since 2017, previously holding the position of Chief Experience Officer where he was responsible for all facets of the member experience, including Operations, Marketing, and Human Resources.
Belle is an active participant in the community. In addition to his work with Mohawk Valley EDGE, he volunteers and holds leadership positions on several boards of directors, including American Heart Association’s Syracuse Heart Walk, Onondaga Community College Foundation, CenterState CEO’s Investment Committee, and Griffiss Park Landowners Association. Belle is also an active member of several industry organizations, including New York State Credit Union Association’s Government Affairs Committee and Universal Sharing Network of Albany.
“It’s an honor to have been chosen for this committee,” continued Belle. “I look forward to bringing my professional expertise and passion for the community to this role to further enhance the great programs EDGE provides our region.”
