Dino Rosati, an electrical engineer by training, became a member of HRCCU in 1990 while working for International Paper. He appreciated the community affiliation and familiar faces he could always count on when visiting the local credit union branch.  Dino developed an interest in HRCCU’s products/services and a strong desire to contribute to the credit union and the credit union movement.  He joined the Supervisory Committee in 2011 and two short years later, he was appointed to the Board of Directors.  Dino continues to work in manufacturing and business roles including operations management, site/plant general management, and product/marketing management.
