Mira Ness has the honor of serving as a CEO of New York University Federal Credit Union for 17 years, during which time we have seen tremendous growth and success. When she first started at NYUFCU in 2006, the credit union was struggling with negative income and had only $7mln in assets. Today their assets have since grown to $73mln. The return on assets (ROA) as of 12/31/2022 was an impressive 3.74%. In addition to Mira’s experience at NYUFCU, she is also a Certified Credit Union Development Educator (CUDE) and has volunteered her time to assist Ukrainian Credit Unions in creating successful agricultural loans for small farms. Mira has also served as a member of the CUNA Small Credit Union Committee in 2017 and 2018, as well as CUNA’s Advisory Committee in 2017 and 2018.
