UFCU Names Vice President of Asset Protection

Chris Miller

Austin, TEXAS, January 2, 2020 — UFCU, Austin’s largest locally owned financial institution, has named Chris Miller vice president of asset protection.

In this role, Miller will be responsible for UFCU’s overall security, including fraud prevention, business continuity and disaster recovery, emergency action planning, physical and information security, and facilities management. Previously, Miller served as senior manager of asset protection.

“Whether it is securing our financial centers with sound opening and closing procedures or partnering with vendors to enhance security, Chris’ emphasis on prevention rather than recovery has contributed widely to his success,” said UFCU President Tony Budet. “During his tenure, he has masterfully assembled the asset protection team with talent acquired from within UFCU and recruited special skills talent from outside. Chris is loyal and reliable and works diligently to ensure success for our Members and employees.”

In addition to his new duties, Miller will be responsible for collections after he is named vice president of enterprise risk management following Ellen Simpson’s retirement in June 2020. Miller and Simpson will work together during the transition.

Before joining UFCU in 2002, Miller spent 20 years in the US Air Force where he served as special agent for the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, leading criminal, counterintelligence, and anti-terrorism investigations worldwide.
