Greetings from the President/CEO
Larry Tobin
Larry Tobin

It’s hard to believe that just a few short years ago our economy experienced such unprecedented and turbulent times. With a New Year upon us, I take great pride in sharing with you that FAIRWINDS is no longer about recovery. We are about growth. We are about the future. But most important, we are about you, our members.

I would like to personally thank you for making FAIRWINDS the best choice for banking in Central Florida. To all of our new members that join the credit union every day, thank you for trusting us to take care of your financial needs. To our long-time members, thank you not only for your loyalty, but also for your commitment to sharing the credit union difference with your friends, family, and neighbors.

If 2011 is any indication of what lies ahead in 2012, I am confident that you will be excited about what we have in store for you. As I said before, at FAIRWINDS we are about you, and you can experience this first-hand with the expansion of Relationship Rewards, our member loyalty program, in early February. With new ways to earn and redeem points, your participation in the credit union will be rewarded even greater than before. Investing in you is a priority to us and our continued efforts to provide you with an improved member experience, both in-person and online, are stronger than ever.

As our presence in Central Florida grows, we are honored that you choose to grow with us. We look forward to another year together serving you and helping you every day.
