Karen Duffy, the longtime CEO of Worcester Credit Union, is retiring at the end of August.

All of her 25 years spent with the $81-million financial institution have been as CEO.

For Duffy, her proudest accomplishments in leading the credit union have been a financial literacy program and collaborating with the Worcester Community Action Council, Quinsigamond Community College, Worcester Technical High School and the Edward M. Kennedy Health Center.

"For a modestly-sized financial institution, we've really done a tremendous amount," Duffy said.

Credit union executive search firm O'Rourke & Associates is working with the union to identify Duffy's successor.

Duffy was named an Outstanding Woman in Business by the WBJ in 2017, serves on several boards and committees in the community, including on the board of directors at the Worcester Regional Research Bureau, the Garden Park Board at the Worcester Business Development Corp. and on the First Wednesday Group.
