Nicholas Mayhew was appointed president and chief executive officer of GPO Federal Credit Union in 2014, but his affiliation with the credit union spans more than 25 years. His tenure on GPO’s board of directors includes serving as vice chairman of the board and being an integral part of the strategic planning process for more than two decades.
Under Nick’s direction, GPO expanded into new markets – including opening a branch in the Barneveld market and increasing ways in which Mohawk Valley residents can become credit union members. During his time at the helm, GPO has seen strong growth in shares, assets and membership. Nick also is active in the credit union industry. He maintains a seat on the board of directors of Owner’s Choice – a mortgage lender for credit union members only.
Giving back to the local community is a priority for Nick. He is a board member of the Mohawk Valley EDGE, the American Heart Association, the Whitestown Youth Association, and the Rome Memorial Hospital Foundation.
Nick earned an A.A.S. degree in accounting from Mohawk Valley Community College, a B.S. degree in CPA Accounting from Utica College, and an M.S. degree in management and urban policy from the New School University. Prior to becoming president and CEO at GPO, Nick worked at Rome Memorial Hospital, where he was vice president and chief financial officer.
Meet GPO's management team
Jodi Blydenburgh began working at GPO in 1993 as marketing director. Since then, Jodi has assumed responsibility for the credit union’s human resource, compliance, security and training departments, in addition to marketing and community relations. The best part of her job is making sure GPO always “puts its best foot forward” – whether it be promoting the many ways GPO can save members money and time or hiring people who embrace GPO’s philosophy of focusing on our members’ financial needs.
She also helps coordinate GPO’s involvement in community events because giving back where members live, contributes to the well-being of the Mohawk Valley region as a whole and is an important part of GPO’s mission. For many years, Jodi has taught financial literacy classes to area youth for Herkimer County summer employment programs, as well as adult learners at various BOCES sites, RCIL and the Refugee Center.
A graduate of Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications with a BS in magazine journalism and a minor in political science, Jodi first worked as a reporter and editor and then made the leap into banking. Jodi serves on the area’s Workforce Development Board, where she represents private sector business for Herkimer County. She is a former board member of the Herkimer County Chapter of the American Red Cross. She resides in Ilion and has three almost grown-up children and one dog who has never quite grown up.
