VALDOSTA – Southeastern Credit Union has promoted Stephen Sainz to Senior Vice President and Senior Risk Officer. In this role, Mr. Sainz oversees member business services, loan administration and loan review, as well as the collections area. Steve was formerly Southeastern’s Vice President of Business Services.

Sainz has been at Southeastern for five years, joining the credit union as a commercial lender assigned to start a member business lending department. In that time, Steve has produced a portfolio of $30 million in business loans.
