FAIRWINDS Credit Union is pleased to announce Dan Kelley as the organization’s newest Regional Vice President of Branch Services.  Kelley has over 10 years of management experience in the financial industry and is an MBA candidate from Webster University.  After joining the FAIRWINDS team in 2005 as an Assistant Branch Manager, Kelley quickly moved his way up within the organization after successfully managing branches located in Winter Park, Apopka, and East Orlando.  He was promoted to a Vice President – Branch Manager position in 2007 and will now oversee the management and operations of nine FAIRWINDS branches located in Orange and Osceola counties. 

Originally from Plano, TX, Kelley has called Central Florida home for over 30 years and is actively involved in giving back to his community.  In addition to his role as Director for the Rotary Club of Apopka, Kelley serves on the Foundation Advisory Board for Cornerstone Hospice and is a committee member of the City of Apopka Youth Leadership Program.

In his new role, Kelley says, “It is my commitment and responsibility to provide and maintain an environment where our members feel comfortable and confident conducting their financial transactions. I will personally ensure that our crewmembers maintain exceptional service levels, are experienced financial professionals and have a desire to enhance our members’ financial well-being.”
