Dr. James Sibert Believes “We” Means Service with Care

For Dr. James Sibert, service is everything. A retired education administrator with more than 25 years of experience in student affairs, his work with students instilled in him an appreciation for going above and beyond to help those in need. In his 30+ years of being an SECU member, he’s watched the Credit Union grow to reach more people than ever, many of whom may never have found help elsewhere.

“Being a member of SECU gives you a feeling of belonging. My background is in working with people and it’s all I’ve ever done. Staying involved in the Credit Union and seeing how it has advanced in so many ways to help people who wouldn’t otherwise find help has been a wonderful experience.”

Today, Dr. Sibert continues his commitment as a volunteer on SECU’s Member Advisory Board, supporting the Credit Union’s efforts to give members the experience and level of care they deserve. Most importantly, he wants to keep the human element that makes SECU so special top of mind.

“There’s a special feeling you get when you walk into the Credit Union. It’s something I don’t think I’ve ever felt anywhere else. The member service is remarkable, and they take care of you. Regardless of how much money you have, regardless of your situation, you’re treated with respect, with care.”
