Marshfield Medical Center Credit Union Announces David Murphy as New President
Marshfield Medical Center Credit Union (MMCCU) has announced David Murphy will be the local credit union’s next President. Longtime President Carol Adler is scheduled to retire after serving the credit union for 36 years. Murphy currently serves as Vice President of Finance & Risk, a role he has held since 2018. His official start date as President is May 1.
“I want to thank Carol for giving me a chance eleven years ago and for the opportunities for advancement within the organization,” said Murphy. “I would not be where I am today without her support throughout the years. I wish her well as she transitions to retirement!”
“David has a terrific credit union history having worked at several credit unions beginning in his teens,” said Adler. “This is good because you need to wear many hats to manage a mid-size institution such as MMCCU. Since joining us in 2010, he has proven himself time and time again. I am confident the Board of Directors made the best choice to promote from within and I congratulate him and wish much success to him and MMCCU.”
Murphy is a Wisconsin native, originally from the Tomah area (Camp Douglas). He attended UW-Eau Claire, graduating with a BS in Accounting. He also earned enough credits to pursue a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) designation, which he earned in 2013.
Murphy has worked in credit unions since he was 16. He started his first job at Oakdale Credit Union, where he worked through high school and college. After living a year in La Crosse, where he worked at Altra Federal Credit Union, he moved to MMCCU in 2010 for what was originally intended to be short-term. Eleven years later, he is still proud to be serving the Marshfield community.
“I enjoy working with our staff to better serve our members, and I like the financial responsibility of managing our members’ money to the best of our ability,” said Murphy. “As President, I am excited to continue our progress forward, to align our products and services with the needs of our members, and to further deepen our relationship with the Marshfield community.”
Murphy is a proud dog-dad to an 8 year-old cocker spaniel named Quincy. His parents remain in the Camp Douglas area and are integral parts of his life. He also has a sister who lives in Kentucky with her fiancé and two kids. In his free time, he enjoys reading, golfing, and serving as treasurer at his church.
“I’ve been blessed in my life in the opportunities given to me, and I try to give back wherever possible,” he said.
Founded in 1965, Marshfield Medical Center Credit Union (MMCCU) is a closed charter, not-for-profit financial institution dedicated to exclusively serving the financial needs of employees in the medical community and their immediate families, therefore designed to best serve the financial needs of this specific group of people.
