Changing of the Guard: Meet CEO Matt Rarden

09/29/2020
Ashleigh, K-Staff


2020 is a year of new beginnings—for better or for worse—and none has been more welcome than the arrival of Kirtland FCU’s new president and CEO, Matt Rarden.

Mr. Rarden assumed his post as the leader of Kirtland FCU on September 14, and he’s been busily meeting employees, members, and learning the ins and outs of Kirtland Federal Credit Union. Kirtland FCU’s history of and commitment to supporting the men and women of Kirtland Air Force Base are particular benefits for Mr. Rarden, and one reason why he wanted to step into the role of Kirtland FCU‘s president and CEO.
 

“Kirtland is a very healthy credit union with a passionate board of directors and a deep history of serving our service women and men,” said Matt Rarden. “My father was in the United States Air Force, so I also had an affinity for the credit union’s history with Kirtland Air Force base.”


Mr. Rarden joins Kirtland FCU after serving as Chief Operating Officer at Premier Members Credit Union in Boulder, CO since 2014. Prior to leading operations at PMCU, Mr. Rarden worked with Fortune 100 company IBM and Fortune 500 companies Convergys and Wells Fargo. He also has extensive experience serving on Premier Members Credit Union’s Board of Directors.

New Mexico was a draw for Mr. Rarden, whose home state of Colorado has a lot in common with its southern neighbor. But there are key differences that presented an allure for Kirtland FCU’s new leader.
 

“Albuquerque’s culture, history and art has always intrigued me and I’m anxious to explore all that New Mexico has to offer,” he said. “Oh, and did I mention the food!?”


Mr. Rarden is most excited about working with Kirtland FCU’s great staff and getting to know the team to be able to build on the credit union’s more than 60-year legacy of serving members and serving the Kirtland AFB and Albuquerque communities.
 

“The credit union philosophy of people helping people is alive and well here at Kirtland FCU, and we want to expand that to everyone in the communities we serve and are a part of,” said Matt Rarden.


Mr. Rarden has four children whom he loves spending time with. He’s also a pilot and looks forward to exploring that passion in the blue skies over New Mexico.
