Liberty Bay Credit Union Hires Lyndon Matteson as President

Liberty Bay Credit Union, one of the most established credit unions in New England, has hired Lyndon Matteson to serve as President, with a view toward succeeding current Chief Executive Officer, Edward Lopes when he retires in late 2019. In his new role as President, Matteson will immediately assume all day to day operational responsibility for the credit union and gradually assume additional strategic, legislative and governance roles.

“Lyn brings 30 years of banking experience to his new position,” said Lopes. “He has a deep background in retail as well as business banking. He is a strong advocate for community involvement and financial literacy, both of which we believe are competitive differentiators.” 

Liberty Bay Chairman Ed Foley added, “Lyn has a demonstrated track record of delivering growth and earnings. He brings exactly the skill set that the Board of Directors wants from our next CEO.”

“I have now met the entire board of directors, most of the staff, and several credit union members. The sense of family at Liberty Bay is exceptional. It will be a great privilege to serve as President. I also look forward to building on Ed’s legacy when the time comes,” said Matteson.

Prior to joining Liberty Bay Credit Union, Matteson has held executive positions at Upstate National Bank, Cobblestone Financial Group, Inc., Citizens Bank/Charter One Bank, and Key Bank.

Matteson received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication with a Minor in Business Management from the State University of New York, Plattsburgh. He currently resides in Victor, NY with his wife and son, and will be relocating to the area.
