Senior vice president and chief information officer, Credit Union of America
Richard Logan’s promotion comes at a time when the credit union has several major projects in the works.
"We have the First Choice (credit union) merger, and we’re also looking at another data processing system," he said. "We’re also building new headquarters."
Logan, 32, was born and raised in Wichita. He got his first taste of computer tech work at Best Buy, then got certified in IT work at Horizons Computer Learning Center and worked as a temp at Wichita Area Technical College.
He got a job at the credit union nine years ago and, after obtaining his business administration degree from Tabor College, was promoted to IT manager. He’s now working on a master’s degree in management information systems from Friends University.
"I really enjoy the work," he said. "I enjoy working with computers and assisting people."
Logan and his wife, Norma, have three children ages 3, 5 and 6. Logan, who also worked with his wife at Sears, followed her to the credit union when she got a job there as a loan officer.
"We’ve worked in the same building for 11 years," he said. "We get along pretty well."
