SAFE Credit Union Announces Eric Wilson as New CIO

FOLSOM, Calif. Aug. 14, 2017 – SAFE Credit Union announced today that Eric Wilson recently joined its executive leadership team to serve as senior vice president and chief information officer (CIO). Wilson was selected after a rigorous nationwide search to replace David Pope, who retired in July after many years of thoughtful leadership.

“Eric has an exceptionally impressive background in leading successful technology teams – and a leadership style and personality that inspires confidence,” said SAFE CEO and President Dave Roughton. “I’m positive the experience Eric brings to SAFE will keep us on the forefront of today’s technology-driven financial services market.”

Wilson is charged with overseeing the information technology and facilities teams at SAFE, a role he is aptly prepared for following his recent tenure as chief technology officer and senior vice president of information technology services at Rabobank. Wilson was responsible for managing Rabobank’s California-based technology professionals who supported business applications and tools, mobile banking, and IT infrastructure across 110 branches.

Prior to joining Rabobank, Eric served as the CIO of FusionStorm, a global provider of technology solutions. In that role, Eric’s responsibilities included managing data centers, facilities, purchasing, international logistics, and travel. He also implemented the company’s information technology strategy and managed the cloud services division.
