Hi. I’m Mike MacPherson, CEO of Freedom FCU.
I share my thoughts and ideas, which are rooted in my experience in the financial industry and as a lifelong Marylander. I want to show our members I’m a regular person, not just a CEO. These are insights from my personal viewpoint, not just a business perspective. I hope you enjoy reading.

Meet Freedom’s President and CEO

Mike MacPherson has over 35 years of experience in the financial industry, including more than 12 years with Freedom before becoming President/CEO in 2016. Born and raised in Baltimore County, Mike is a graduate of Mt. St. Joseph High School and Towson University. Mike now resides in Harford County, which he has called home for over 30 years.

He likes to blog because it helps him connect with members on a human level. He says, “It’s not just about what products we offer; it’s about what we stand for, why people should join, and spreading the credit union message with greater reach and purpose. If we want people to understand our culture, that we are trying to be something special, we need to give them the insight from a personal viewpoint, not just as a business.” He believes passionately in our community, our employees, our mission of giving back, and providing members with financial products and services that lead to their success.
