President and CEO, Latino Community Credit Union
Luis Pastor has been President and CEO of Latino Community Credit Union (LCCU) since 2000. He oversaw the organization’s expansion to over 60,000 members and 11 branches statewide, making it the fastest growing credit union in the U.S. During his tenure, LCCU has become model for institutions in the U.S. and abroad seeking to provide financial education and services to unbanked and low-income immigrant communities. LCCCU has received more than 35 local and national awards: including the E Pluribus Unum award for its exceptional immigration integration initiatives and the first Wachovia NEXT Award designed to propel high-potential CDFIs to a next level of growth, success, and staying power.
In 2015, in recognition of his exceptional leadership skills, Pastor was selected by Credit Union Times readers as one of the 64 most influential leaders in the credit union industry for the past 25 years.
