Charles E. “Chuck” Adcock III has been the FSU Credit Union President/Chief Executive Officer since 2018. Adcock first joined the credit union in 1994 as a teller while completing his finance degree from Florida State University. He quickly moved up the ranks to second in command before being named incoming President/CEO. While serving as EVP of FSU Credit Union for 14 years, he formed and became the Chief Operating Officer for the Credit Union Service Organization, iDriveLending, LLC. By combining the buying power of six credit unions, iDriveLending helps to streamline the auto loan process for local auto dealers and consumers. This past year, Chuck led the successful merger of Pensacola-based Gulf Power Company Employees Credit Union into FSU Credit Union, expanding the credit union’s branch footprint from three counties to five. The credit union will soon be opening a new branch in Panama City, Fla., and recently entered into an agreement to merge the Florida Department of Transportation Credit Union.
Chuck is considered one of Tallahassee’s most respected lending and financial literacy experts. He serves as a guest lecturer on financial literacy topics at local colleges and universities including Florida State University, local high schools, and area businesses. He was the keynote speaker at the Florida State University College of Business 2017 hooding ceremony and consults with credit unions across the country implementing and managing risk-based lending programs. In 2017, he was named a “Credit Union Rock Star” by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). Adcock was the only honoree from Florida and one of just 54 Credit Union Rock Stars selected nationwide by CUNA and Credit Union Magazine.
Chuck served for three years on the FAMU Small Business Development Center Emergency Bridge Loan Committee, which last year approved more than 87 local business loans, putting more than $5 million back into our local economy. He was recently appointed to the Citizens’ North Monroe Corridor Task Force, which was formed to identify opportunities to reduce crime, and improve safety and overall conditions, including economic conditions and aesthetics, along the North Monroe Street corridor between Fred George Road and Tharpe Street. Chuck also serves on the Boards of the FSU College of Business Department of Finance Professional Advocacy Board and Community Christian School.
Chuck received his B.S. in Finance from the Florida State University College of Business in 1997. He is also a graduate of the University of Lending (1997, 2002), CUNA Mutual BDS/BDST Program (1999), and the Jim Moran Institute Small Business Executive Program (2015).
