New East Branch Manager - Jake Johnson

Jake Johnson has been promoted to branch manager of our Lincoln East branch. He will be responsible for the daily operations, loan servicing and membership development for the East branch and will work closely with University of Nebraska FCU members to effectively serve their wide variety of lending needs.

A Franklin, Neb. native, Johnson is a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in business administration. Prior to coming to the credit union, Jake worked briefly in the insurance industry and at another local financial institution. He has worked at the credit union since January of 2014 and has been instrumental in the growth and expansion of the credit union. “Finding just the right person to replace Sue Givens, the retiring branch manager at our East branch, was very important” said President and CEO Keith Kauffeld. “Jake is a perfect fit to provide the service our members expect.”

While serving as a member service officer at the credit union for the past six years, Jake has also served on the Board for the Lincoln Chapter of the Nebraska Credit Union League. In his role with the League, Johnson helped plan fundraising events for the Children’s Miracle Network and other local charities as well as helped develop a speaker series to continue to bring professional development opportunities to the employees of all the credit unions in Lincoln.

Jake is married to Rachelle and they have a beautiful daughter named Nora. Rachelle is also from Franklin, Neb. and is a teacher with Lincoln Public Schools.
