Ent Credit Union, a financial institution with several branches open and planned in the Boulder Valley and Northern Colorado, has promoted Dan Leclerc to chief financial officer, effective immediately.
In the announcement issued Wednesday, Ent said Leclerc, who has been employed by the credit union for 10 years and has more than 20 years of experience in the field of finance, most recently held the role of senior vice president and deputy chief financial officer.
He replaces MJ Coon, who retired after 25 years of service at Ent.
As CFO, Leclerc will continue to focus on operational support, financial and accounting controls, and long-term strategy.
“We have a remarkable team here at Ent and a first-class culture. I’m excited and grateful for this opportunity,” Leclerc said in a prepared statement. “I look forward to my continued work with my colleagues and the leadership team and to helping drive Ent’s continued growth, while serving our members and amazing Colorado communities.”
In his previous role, Leclerc’s responsibilities included developing strategic plans for Ent’s finance, treasury and profitability areas, overseeing the annual budget process and execution, month-end process and asset-liability management.
Prior to joining Ent in 2013, Leclerc provided strategic leadership within financial institutions in roles spanning CEO, CFO, information technology and operations. He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s in finance from Southern New Hampshire University.
Based in Colorado Springs, Ent has three locations in Fort Collins as well as branches in Timnath, Loveland, Firestone, Broomfield and Brighton. Its plans include second branches in Loveland and Broomfield as well as expansion to Greeley and Windsor.
The credit union was founded in 1957 to serve what was then Ent Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, and as of last fall reported a membership of around 450,000.
