I have been a proud member of SCE FCU for over 20 years. Credit unions have always been very special to me because they treat everyone as a “member” and “owner”. I feel like a trusted partner, as opposed to banks where I just feel like another faceless “number”. Trust is very important to me. SCE FCU earned mine, which is a key reason why I am proud to serve as a volunteer Board member.
Kenji brings to the Board his 28 years of experience at Southern California Edison in the areas of strategic planning, corporate governance, finance, internal controls, and disaster recovery. He currently works in SCE’s Transmission department as Senior Manager of Project Development and Management.
