From Our President/CEO

Hello, It’s a Pleasure to Meet You

CEO Frank Wasson portrait

As the new CEO and President for First Entertainment Credit Union, I am honored to follow in the footsteps of Chuck Bruen and continue his 30-year legacy. For me, being with First Entertainment is especially rewarding, as it’s a return to my entertainment industry roots. Prior to my 15 years in credit union leadership, I held Senior IT leadership roles for the world’s largest media/entertainment and retail merchandise companies. I’ve spent my entire career at the crossroads of finance and technology, and few financial institutions are better poised than First Entertainment to take advantage of coming innovations. The best is yet to come, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it! Here are a few highlights:


Culver City Branch Transformation

Later this year, our Culver City branch will be moving to a beautiful new location just down the street, and will feature a gorgeous design, plus a digital banking environment with an increased focus on member interaction.

Business Services Launch

We know our members have an entrepreneurial streak — that’s why we’ve released a new suite of services just for them. Our new Business Essentials Checking, Business Savings, Business Money Market, and more, reflect our deep commitment to servicing entertainment industry professionals and the surrounding community.

Improved Service for Entertainment Industry Companies

We’ve recently expanded our membership development team, increasing our ability to provide personalized service for the companies we serve. More people mean more opportunities to spread the word about First Entertainment and the benefits of credit union membership!

Taking Security Seriously

I want you to be assured that we take your account security VERY seriously. That’s why we’ve added EMV Chip protections to our Debit Cards. They join with our Visa Platinum® Cards in offering you even greater protection when making transactions worldwide.

My promise to you – At our core, First Entertainment has always been about people, and that’s never going to change. We understand the industry in which you work and have the training and products to help you adapt to your everyday financial ups and downs. As a “people” company, we’re also about awesome staff! We’ve hired the best, and I’m sure you will feel it in your experience with us. I’m grateful for the opportunity to support you, your family, and your business.

Thank you for your membership,

Frank Wasson

President/CEO
