TAMPA — GTE Financial, one of Florida's largest credit unions, recently promoted three longtime staff members to new executive-level roles.

According to a press release, each has been with GTE Financial for more than a decade. The promotions include:

• Kyle Donovan has been promoted to vice president of operations. He first joined GTE in 2003 as a teller. He's also worked in the company's IT department;

• Paul Wisniewski will take on the role of vice president of enterprise infrastructure. Wisniewski began his career with GTE in 2006 as a network support specialist and in 2011 became assistant vice president of network, systems and security; and

• Ashley Stimatz's new position is assistant vice president and chief of staff to the president and CEO, Brian Best. Like Donovan, Stimatz started with GTE as a teller and steadily worked her way up, eventually becoming assistant vice president of community engagement. In her new position, she will work closely with Best and lead special projects and research for the cooperative, according to the release.

“Throughout the years, all three executives have been devoted to bringing the best banking experience to our membership,” states Brian Best, president and CEO of GTE Financial, in the release. “They have been advocates for the credit union and we are all proud of their continuous accomplishments.”
