INDIANAPOLIS – Randy Jones, Vice Chairman of Energy Plus Credit Union (CU) is the Indiana Credit Union League’s 2019 recipient of the Leadership Achievement Award. The presentation was made at the Chairman’s Awards Banquet at the JW Marriott Hotel on October 25 as part of a special event during the League’s statewide convention.
Jones has been a credit union volunteer for more than 18 years. He was instrumental in the merger between IPALCO Credit Union and Citizens Gas and Coke Utility Credit Union in 2006, which combined to make today’s Energy Plus CU. The credit union serves more than 4,300 members from offices in Indianapolis and Petersburg.
While he has been on the credit union board, Jones has worked to increase board member education programs including policy review and the IT steering committee, but he is most proud of the credit union’s work with students. Energy Plus CU provides financial education classes in Pike County and in the Indianapolis metro area to help prepare students for the financial realities of adulthood.
Jones has combined his work on the board with a demanding professional career that has taken him out of the country for extended periods, but it has not affected his ability help direct the path of the credit union. After spending a large part of his career with Indianapolis Power and Light, an AES Corporation and Fortune 500 global power company, he is currently the director of Shared Services for IU Health in Indianapolis.
Outside the credit union, he has held leadership roles in organizations such as the Electric League of Indiana, where he was chairman; United Way; the Indiana Avenue Cultural District, where he was economic development chairman; and the Ransom Place Neighborhood Association.
The Leadership Achievement Award recognizes credit union volunteers/officials who have given selflessly to promote the credit union ideal and to better the credit union movement in Indiana.
