Honor CU Promotes New Tech Guy From Within

When it comes to helping the team create innovative new ways to do things for the customer, or just to iron out computer bugs, email issues, phone problems and other nagging things that keep you from being productive, it’s always nice to know the guy from the tech department has your back, especially when he’s a familiar face already.

Honor Credit Union is excited to announce the internal promotion of Eddy Cole. Formerly serving as Infrastructure Manager, Cole recently accepted the role of Assistant Vice President of Information Technology (IT) with the team at Berrien Springs-based Honor.

Originally from Lakeview, Michigan, Eddy Cole has lived in St. Joseph since 2014 with his wife, Heather, and their dog Chuckles. With a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from Central Michigan University, Cole has experience working as a Network and Systems Administrator and been with Honor since arriving in the area five years ago. When he’s not guiding Honor’s IT department, Cole enjoys going on adventures with his wife Heather, kayaking and hiking.

As the Assistant Vice President of IT, Cole will work to build teams of innovators that deliver competitive emerging technologies and help to equip Honor’s teams in maximizing the member experience, both virtually and in member center locations. Along with leading his team, Cole will assist in partnering with third-party technology vendors to develop relationships that build strong, stable, and rewarding alliances.

Cole says, “I have worked with a lot of teams, and this is by far the best team I’ve ever been a part of,” adding, “In my new role, I look forward to continuing to help grow and develop a team of talented IT Professionals and evolving the IT Strategy to further leverage technology to enhance the member and team member experience. I love working every day with a team whose hard work is automatic, and member service is the top priority.”
