Thinking about sunny skies as winter approaches? The Sunshine State has plenty!

Are you a strategically focused CFO?
Do you enjoy turning financial data into actionable plans?
Are you an experienced leader who coaches and develops others?

Then, you are just the type of leader we are looking for in our next Chief Financial Officer (CFO). The CFO will join the Publix Employees Federal Credit Union (PEFCU) executive team led by our strategic and innovative new CEO who champions strategic thinking and innovation. 

Publix Supermarkets was founded in 1930 by George W. Jenkins with the idea to make shopping for groceries a better experience. Today, Publix is the largest employee-owned company in the United States and retail sales were over $48 billion in 2021. The employee-owners, retirees and their families are the membership base of PEFCU and just as Mr. Jenkins built the supermarkets based on the philosophy of treating employees and customers like family, the credit union follows the same principles. This philosophy affords the credit union a unique opportunity to genuinely impact the lives of its members, the associates of Publix Supermarkets.

The CFO must be able to communicate complex information and effectively present it to the board and other credit union executives. The CFO focuses on the current and future financial markets serving the credit union’s different demographic areas. This position supports the credit union through data analytics, metrics, forecasting, risk management, ALCO, and overall strategy to meet the organization’s future and current needs. The CFO is accountable for maximizing and understanding assets, liabilities, investments, profits, and human capital.
