Virginia Beach, VA (October 30, 2022) – Chartway Credit Union is proud to announce that its chief financial officer, Ben Lemoine, has been named a 2022 Top 40 Under 40 honoree by Inside Business. This year’s nominees were evaluated based on their vision, leadership, innovation, achievements in business, and community service. The judges focused heavily on volunteerism, community commitment and involvement, and the diversity of interests of those being considered.

Brian Schools, Chartway’s president & CEO, shared that Chartway is “also grateful to Ben for his philanthropic leadership, commitment to making a difference, and using his talents to strengthen our members, communities, and our team.” In addition to serving as a board member and treasurer for the Chartway Promise Foundation, Lemoine serves on several other volunteer committees: he’s the secretary/treasurer for Chartway’s CUSO Board, a member of Chartway’s asset/liability management committee, a member of the 401K investments committee, a member of the Chartway Promise Foundation audit committee, and he serves on the Chartway Promise Foundation compensation committee.
